ASUS P8H67-M LE vs GIGABYTE H67MA-UD2H

Hello,
I am trying to choose between these two motherboards . Has anybody had particularly good or bad experiences with either board? Reliability and future proofing are more important than outright performance.
My proposed system will have i5-2400 processor, HD5770 graphic card and 8GB ram.

  1. Why spend the extra money on an H67 MB, which has onboard graphics, when you are going to use a separate graphics card anyway?
    Why not get an H61 board like this one:

    GIGABYTE GA-H61M-D2P-B3 LGA 1155 Intel H61 Intel Motherboard
  2. Thanks for the suggestion.
    I live in Malaysia and the selection of boards is not always great.
    Unfortunately I can't get Newegg deals either.
  3. Darn. Remind me not to move to Malaysia....
    Does this help?

  4. Cannnot get Amazon motherboards either. They only ship to 48 US states.
    I would prefer USB 3 and perhaps e-sata for futureproofing. P61 cards do not seem to have those.
  5. Both the H61 and H67 chipsets support the integrated HD graphics on the Sandy Bridge CPU's there are other features missing on the H61 vs H67!
  6. Looking at H61 motherboards, some have USB3 but I have not seen any with SATA 6 GB or e-sata. Do they exist?
    Also most (all) P67 boards are full ATX, H67 boards seem to be M-ATX, and some H61 boards are ITX.
    Since my wife would prefer as small a case as possible and would like a reasonably powerful machine, are there H67 ITX boards?

    One possibility is Silverstone SG-05 case with ASUS P8H61 motherboard and HD5770. I will have to get the bigger power supply version.

    Do H61 boards support SSD's? I might install one later.

    Sure, no problem with SSD; just add drivers.

  10. P8h67-I deluxe seems to be the best. Wi-fi, USB 3 SATA 6and e-SATA .
    Thank you every body for your advice and suggestions. I will try to find them now.
