Ga-P67A vs. P8P67 Pro

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Title covers it.
I have 2 choices here to go along with my i5 Sandy Bridge 2500k,

ASUS P8P67 PRO LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131682

only issue with that board is the fact that it is sold out at my micro center. I will be buying the processor with them since they have it on sale for 150 bucks.

the 2 others that they do have in stock that are within 200 bucks are:

Intel
DP67BG Extreme Series LGA 1155 ATX Intel Motherboard
http://www.microcenter.com/single_pr...uct_id=0354230

and the

Gigabyte
GA-P67A-UD4 LGA 1155 P67 ATX Intel Motherboard
http://www.microcenter.com/single_pr...uct_id=0354003

Now, I am only doing mild OCing with this processor (4-4.4 tops).
Is waiting a week or so and ordering the Asus from newegg worth waiting a week and and an extra 50 bucks over these other mobos?

UEFI is not on Gigabyte's board yet, but it will be eventually. The sale price of the PRO is really hard to pass up.

Any of those boards will reach 4-4.4ghz.

Reasons to get P8P67:
-MemOK, very very handy feature.
-additional 2 fake phase power
-EFI BIOS EZ Mode is pretty gimmicky, but it so beautiful it makes me cry.

Resons to get GA-P67A-UD4:
-Black PCB

Resons to get the Intel mobo:
-Intel mobos not deserve a discuss

You got my point, Asus fanboism.
