Thread Starter 
I'm replacing my amd rig, simply because my 965 and 4phase mobo didn't turn out to be too much fun, nothings fried yet but encountered a few bsods.

The parts itself in the new build isn't too important to mention, but I'm down to two problems

ASUS P8P67 PRO vs Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD3P or MSI P67A-GD65

Both the asus and gigabyte cards has 12 pp, while the msi one has something called SFC phases, no idea what that is as of yet.
All are priced the same at the store I'm buying from, would like a simple answer with experiences within OCing.

The second thing I was worried about if the upcoming bulldozer cpus would be worth waiting for, they're both 32nm cpus and the price would probably be higher than a 2500k, as a comparison.

Wait. its only a few months till bulldozer and that 965 is more than capable as it is. At least see what AMD come up with because by the looks of things their 8 core will be the same price as the 2600k.

Why turn this thread into yet another AMD vs Intel argument witchdoctor? it dosn't hurt to see what AMD come up with. If BD flops, oh well, get a SB system 2 months down the line.

Wish there was a -rep button.

I did not such thing,

Simply stating facts here ...... SB Rocks period

I see no AMD boards in the poll, why are they even being discussed

You can talk Bulldozer all you want. But don't bring it up if you don't want to discuss ....

Are you for real ?

OP

Like stated .... I would give the UD4 a hard look if you can swing it.

GPU bench but dig the clocks on an H70 .....

^ Learn to read.

Yes i'm for real witchdoctor. We all know SB rocks, i mean its only failed once in its 2 month lifespan.

What is the harm in waiting to find out what will happen when the new AMD processors reach the market?

Basic grammar would be nice too. He knows your opinion now, and i suggest you leave before you turn this thread into a flamefest. I'll do the same, but some unbiased replies would be nice for the OP.

Either one of those mobos will be fine. It all comes down to preference. MSI can easily OC as good as the P8P67 Pro & the P67A UD4. If you want to know specifically what these mobos do, just Google the site reviews (there are many) and take some time to read about them. This will help you make a better choice for yourself. You're asking people for their opinions but you will rarely recieve a logical explanation about why you should buy this or that. Hope you make the right choice for yourself

And if you're curious about Bully-Dozer , then you should wait until it's released so you can make your comparison to SB.
