which of these boards?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
hey guys,

so i've decided to buy a z68 motherboard for a new build and my budget is kind of low.
I was wondering which of these three boards you would recommend. From what seen, it looks like the Asrock is the better board out of those, but i would like a more experienced opinion. thanks a lot

Of those 3 I would probably pick the Asrock. They have done a lot of good things lately. However, that Asus board is also probably very good. I had an Asus LE board in my old PC that lasted me 4 almost 5 years running 24/7. Biostar on the other hand. I have had nothing but bad experiences from them. 2 doa boards back in the day and then the 3rd one didnt like an ram I used. The Asus LE I had is what actually went in its place. just my .02

I would go with the Asrock. They have proven themselves greatly over the last generation of CPU's. They are easily the best bang for the buck boards available. My only gripe (and several other peoples) is their support. They don't exactly have the best support, however they do have a VERY fast RMA process. I'll be ordering a the Asrock P67 Extreme4 Gen3 at the end of the month for my new build.
