Honestly, if it was <$20 difference then sure, get Z67 as it's nice to have newer stuff but if I was to build my rig today, no way in hell I'd pay $50 extra for something I'd never use.

Z67 is a reasonable upgrade only if you encode.
thx but no its 20 euro cheaper than my current board and i ordered it

After careful consideration I decided that I will just swap out my B2 Asus P8P67 Deluxe for a B3 board. Since I have a 120GB SSD, I don't need to worry about SSD caching. I also don't do much (if any) trans-coding. Will probably use the Z68 board for a future build for a friend though, unless the P67 prices are insanely good.

There's no need for a Z68 unless it's compatible with the incoming IB; which is not, so it's useless.

Z68 isn't useless... QuickSync is amazing I use it on my Core i7 2630QM laptop and it's very quick. It also has better quality than Cuda and Avivo. Who said Ivy Bridge won't work on Z68?

Yeah, that's a OEM Laptop. As I've said, for OEMs, desktops, laptops and Office computers I'm sure Z68 will do good. But for an Entusiasts Desktop, it's pretty useless VS P67

The "H" series chipsets are for office setups...

Who would overclock an Office computer?

Source?

They are saying IB will be backwards compatible with a BIOS flash...

The integrated graphics and HDD/SSD caching features in the Z68 is more suitable for the future low cost OEMs, Office computers and Laptops. No doubt about it.
