Not as knowledgeable on the UD4, but here's some of the reasons I chose the UD5 over the deluxe. I think the main thing is that the Asus has an Intel NIC, onboard bluetooth, and is shipped with EUFI BIOS. Gigabyte will soon release EUFI BIOS as well, so that's no big deal. Personally, I really like the USB features of the Gigabyte boards, on/off charge power, 3x power, and more USB3.0 ports (with the UD5).

Gigabyte P67A-UD5 Pros:
- 3x USB power
- On/Off USB power
- 4 USB3.0 ports
- 2 USB3.0 headers
- 2 pwr eSATA (6Gb/s)
- 20 phase power

Gigabyte P67A-UD5 Cons:
- Only 2 internal Sata 6Gb/s ports
- Not shipped with EFI BIOS
- No bluetooth
- Single LAN
- No Intel LAN
- Capacitors within very close proximity of socket
- No USB3.0 front panel adapter

The PRO is the much better buy, imo. You save $80 and get everything you need. The Gigabyte's seem far overpriced for what they have to offer. Every review I have read comparing the two preferred the ASUS boards over the Gigabyte boards. You can also look at the ASUS Deluxe and Sabertooth as well. ^_^

$80 cheaper? There's a $10 difference at Fry's last time I looked. You realize he's asking about the UD4, right? Anyway - it's just a different feature set between boards regarding connectivity and what you think you will actually use.

they are about the same price indeed.

i dont want to invest too much into the 1155 for now. since bulldozer is just around the corner, i dont know if i will be able to resist that when its out.

I do, but you were talking about the UD5. lol

I would choose the ASUS PRO over the UD5 is my point so if its PRO vs UD4, it's not even a contest in my eyes.

Go back and reread my post a little slower and in context. Between UD4 and Pro, I would agree that the Pro is probably the way to go. The UD4 doesn't have firewire, it has only 2 6Gb/s Sata ports, it has no extra USB3.0 ports over the Asus Pro, both are 12 phase, and the Asus has the Intel NIC. Actually, now that this has come back to me a bit, Pro does win hands down over UD4.

The UD4 looks so much better though. It's too bad.

Im on the fence with this decision as well.

I know its still early, but it seems like there are many ppl getting 5+ overclocks on the Asus Pro, i havent seen too many results with the UD4/5.

Anyone have any OC results or links for the UD4/5.

I'm also leaning toward p8p67 but Lot of people are saying to get Pro instead is there big difference between asus p8p67 - asus p8p67 pro?

I won't be using sli or crossfire that's only thing i see difference between pro and regular p8p67 version.
