Looking at a mobo for a i5 680 and can't quite make up my mind. I'm trying to decide between the following.

Gigabyte H55M-USB3
Asus P7H55D-m Evo

I open to other boards if there is something else that I should be looking at. Any suggestion would be much appreciated in helping me with my decision.

Opt for the i5 760 over the i5 680.. It'll get you a better processor at a lower price.. The saved cash can then be put to get a better on motherboard..

Get whichever's cheaper; they're pretty comparable boards, and both Gigabyte and ASUS are respected brands for mobos.

Get ASUS, Gigabyte is crap. ASUS typically has more power {Phases} to the CPU + RAM. Unless there's some deep seeded need don't get the H55 instead go the P55 route.

The ASUS P7H55D-M EVO is a deactivated MOBO -- what are you looking at eBay?!
My recommendation is the ASUS P7P55D-E Pro ; unbeatable for $ and options.
