Should I go for Biostar TH67+ or wait for Asus 1155 Boards?

Hi,

NewEgg have already started selling a revised version of the Biostar TH67+ Motherboard.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813138296&cm_re=lga1155-_-13-138-296-_-Product

They are in stock at the moment for $104.99, I am wondering should I go for this now or wait on the Asus boards to come out.

Ideally Id like to wait but Im heading to the USA in a 1 1/2 weeks and parts are way cheaper off NewEgg than they are off any website that ships to where I am (Ireland).

Any help would be greatly appreiciated. I reckon they'll sell out on NewEgg quickly.

Regards.

  1. That would be totally up to you! But you could get it just in case the Asus will be later than your trip. If Asus comes in time you go home with two boards and you probably can recover the cost+ because of the price difference.
  2. I just got an email from Asus today saying that I can expect my shipping labels in the mail any day to return my mobo. Their website said they shipped p67 B3 revision boards out to vendors yesterday. Expect the asus boards in Newegg by Friday
  3. I'd wait for Asus.... they are consistently at the top of the overclockability list and quality is better than most boards ...especially in the Sabertooth TUF line

    Yes but this Biostar is a H67 which has the GPU Compaitibility which is a plus for me because Im on a budget.

    So any word on the Asus H67 Revisions?

    Thanks.

    The Asus website confirms they are shipping the H67s too

    Out of curiosity what is the main reasoning for you to get a sandy bridge system and using integrated graphics? The H67 can use the integrated GPU on the sandy bridge processor but if you install a discrete GPU in the PCIe slot the H67 will disable the sandy bridges iGPU. The only reason to use an H67 board is in a low power setting like an HTPC or a home server.
  6. I would get the Asus. Biostar boards are cheap.

    Well the main reason was to save money by not having to buy even a cheap GPU.

    Getting an i5 Sandy Bridge, 1TB, 8G DDR3-1300 etc for under $600 is not easy and Im just in at $599 with the Biostar H67.

    Well are the disadvantages of going for a H67 for mainly Photoshop, Dreamweaver, Bit of Video Conversion and some very basic gaming (Sims 3 etc.)?

    Thanks.
