why MSI? i see you are getting a deal, but I would just stick to a better manufacturer. Many people have issues with the MSI mobos, I would suggest a ASUS, ASRock or Gigabyte.

Looked like a solid board IMO.

Should I go P67 or Z68? I don't care about SSD caching or IGP.
(With combos I can get $60 off most mobos at microcenter)

Hows this: http://www.microcenter.com/single_pr...uct_id=0367878

Edit: Or this: http://www.microcenter.com/single_pr...uct_id=0364229

(I'm basically just offering up whatever the tustin microcenter has in stock)

Bump, still trying to decide if I should go with a different mobo, MSI isn't that bad is it?

Heres another p67: MSI P67A-GD65

I noticed most only allow x8,x8 pcie support, and I am thinking of going SLI later on. Will it impact performance enough with say two GTX460's? Maybe I should go with this board for x16,x16 support?

The performance difference between 16/16 and 8/8 is negligible.

Guy above is right though, I just switched from an MSI board to an Asus because of the quality. MSI boards have poor power phases among other things, I'd go for that Asrock or a P8P67 pro
