Which board have better OC ability for SB? and I'm planning on SLI-ing in the future, and I've heard that Asus only support 8x/8x on it's PCI-E slot... and MSI can do 16x/16x... Does that means that the MSI board is better at SLI-ing??

Also, what other factors should I look for on these boards?

Any help will be appreciated.

Both boards have the same OC ability,however the P8P67 Pro has a better BIOS and better features out of the box at roghly the same price.

All Sandybridge boards work at 8x/8x with dual cards,this is limitied within the chipset.the MSI board is not an exception.however it has been demostrated that the performance degradation is nulled against 2 cards in x16/x16. So even if you run both cards at 8x/8x you will have the same performance x16/x16.

Go with ASUS it is a better choice.

Depends on your needs, the P8P67 M pro is a slightly smaller board with less features than the full sized P8P67 pro. This boards are mainly used for Rig builders who need more mobility of their towers. Let's say gaming rigs for lan parties for example.

Both boards will support a 8x/8x dual card configuration.

If you are not this type of gamer go with the normal P8P67 Pro, it has been the best Bang for the buck Sandybridge board since the second generation of i7's has been out.

Between this 2, i'd say the Asus P8P67 Pro is better.

Both can adjust vcore.

Having owned a GD55 (same PCB as GD65), I think it is a very solid board. It overclocked well, and had a bunch of nice features.

The bios was fine, did what it is supposed to do, nothing wrong with it. If you prefer useless bling, then you will probably like the asus better though.
