The ud7 has many more features but your right the asus has uefi bios and is alot cheaper.

If your pc is mainly for gaming go with the 2500k it's cheaper and provides the same performance in games and the same overclockability you could use the extra $100 saved and put towards a gtx 580

I would also throw in a 1tb samsung spinpoint f3 hdd for storage as its cheap as chips anyway and a great performer. You will use up that 128gb sdd in no time!

memory is fine @ 1.65v

Everything else looks solid

I have the Asus P67 Board, and while atm it does have UEFI which the UD7 does not, the UD7 supports it and a planned bios upgrade will feature it. At least according to Gigabyte. Both are excellent boards and you would do well with either one.

Thanks Chewy for the Samsung spinpoint recommendation! It really is cheap

I chose the UD7 mainly because it can be tri-SLIed. The only Asus board with such capability is the Maximus IV which is more expensive.

What i am not sure of however is if this will save me money later on if I decided to upgrade/scale the graphics card. Are tri-SLI worth it or is it better to just invest up front by getting a gtx 580

the UD7 is a sickenning board, just so sick, i love mine. its nice to look at, the PCb is black and not brown(evga, asus, msi). The heatsinks are very nice. The board has more features than phases ! lol that is going to be somthign i say now.

Honestly though EVERy P67 board OCes the same. You just got to get used to it.

IMHO, go with an ASUS P8P67 EVO or Deluxe, and put the money saved from not buying the UD7 into a GTX 580.

I want to know if there are some alternatives and/or comments (incompatibilities, issues, not worth it, etc...) regarding the build's components.
