I am leaning towards the Gigabyte board. Its cheaper, has one PCI lane which will allow me to keep my Xonar, has that dope matte black PBC, and awesome reviews. biggrin.gif

I have always been a huge fan of Gigabyte when it comes to motherboards.

They have great features, better pricing, and as you mentioned (P67 and newer gen) that sexy matte black finish rolleyes.gif

They also seem to have fewer issues than other board manufacturers.

Another things that's drawing me to them. At first I was put off by some of the VRMs being heatsink-less, but people are still getting great overclocks with the UD3. I doubt I'll ever take my CPU over 4.5ghz anyway, I have no need to honestly.

I hate seeing my R4 all dead and ish thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

Sadly not the case for my Z68 board (GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3). After that and an Gigabyte AM3 board, I promised to myself that I will never use Gigabyte again. Love both of my ASRock Z77 boards I've tried though--solid, great BIOSes, no weird moody behavior, and easy to work with overclocks, vs my Gigabyte boards (which had all kinds of POST issues for no good reasons).

Can't go wrong either way. My e8400 ran at 4.4 for 3 years on an ep45-ud3p. Still a perfectly working board. Too big for an HTPC though. Not sure what imma do with it.

Went with the gd65 based on looks and size (it doesn't have that standoff issue that asrock boards do, and gigabyte boards were priced horribly back then). Can't really go wrong with a z77 board these days.
