whats the specific reason you prefer z68 over the p67.
They both have the ability to support IB?

Thanks, but unfortunately we don't have one in San Diego. We have FRY's and for some reason they don't carry ASRock.

I googled Superbiiz and it seems they are ok. I'm going to go for it!

I sold my AMD rig CH-V and 1100t and a gs600

And can afford a sandy bridge rig... wow there goes AMD's supposed Price to performance.

Actually I was going to go the p67 rout, but
why not try SSD Caching?

Thinking of putting games on my 1tb with SSD caching

then a new SSD for a boot drive when size to cost gets better

Smart response will work with a secondary drive right?

Website says there's one in Tustin CA... whats that about 25 - 30 miles north of San Diego? Not sure if that's convenient for ya or not? Probably not worth it considering the cost of gas these days! LOL

Good luck with which ever Board you get though! I would go with an ASRock personally, as I am thinking of getting one myself to upgrade my old PIIx4 940 system! Just haven't decided yet between a 2500K or a 2600K.

well if thats worth the extra $$ then go for it. Only other benefit i see is the onbaord video which doesnt matter IMO if you have your GPU.

I have heard rumors of p67 getting ssd caching but I haven't heard it it was true or w/e
also My 6950 might be getting RMA'ed if the fan doesn't stop making weird noises. it will be nice to have video in the meantime lol.

thanks for the help guys...
But I am still wondering how ever
Does Smart response support a secondary drive or just the primary drive

yeah not too sure.
I say get what you can and if z68 is what that is then get it, you'll be able to upgrade down the road with both. So either get the stuff now so that you only need to upgrade the cpu or go the other route.

I've ordered from Superbiz for years and never had any trouble. They used to be called Ewiz and always had better prices than Newegg. Get the Asrock, love both of mine
