but from the reviws and youtube vide i seen the Maximus IV Extreme dont overclock that much better then the deluxe.

go with the pro. if you want to tri sli in the future you could even get the ws revolution (great board) but the maximus is for the extreme enthusiast. waste of money imo.

read the mobo forums and count how many people are making new problem threads on the p8p67 boards and post back a number here. Now rethink if you should buy that board or a different one that doesn't require you spend extra hours to fix its problem.

Go with the gigabyte ud4. Simple, easy to use, and cheaper.

Using this ud3p board gives me a new love for gigabyte. For all the overclocking i've had to do, i've already corrupted a bios and had several unsuccessful boots. The board fixed itself for all occurrences, I didn't have to remove a cmos battery or anything.

Love it.

i think i going to go with the asus deluxe p67.
i was looking at the pro but it looks un finshed
any way for 2 way sli what pci-e slot would i use
the top dark blue and the white or black slot
or just the white and black.
and i kinda like the Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD7
but it has the old bios .
