Yer gonna want to go with Extreme4 like the guy above said, and put the saved $$ into an SSD, or if you have that planned, then into improving other aspects of ur comp. I just finished my new rig, and the biggest mistake I made was investing money into good quality products all around EXCEPT going with an SSD. As a result, the Western Digital Caviar has been a serious performance bottleneck on my PC. Benchmarking has been embarrassing
But yeah, as far as I can tell, ASRock and Asus are the best P67 boards available. For the most part, there is not much of a difference between the two, but I do believe that SandyBridge is a bit more comfy on the Asus boards, though not by much. If cost is not an issue, look into the Maximus IV, if you wanna get the best cost-performance board, ASRock is your product. I've seen insane speeds on both models, and frankly gigabyte has disappointed me. ECS is the only other real contender for the P67's IMO.
Sorry, I didn't mean to launch into a motherboard brand debate... I really love my Extreme4 a lot, and ASRock is really starting to emerge as a very strong company.
