So I was close to buying a Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD4-B3 board, but after reading about boot loop issues, is there another MORE STABLE alternative out there?

I'm not sure what P67, Z68 H57 or whatever means or does, but I'd prefer something stable as opposed to new and having bells'n'whistles.

So, can anyone steer me in the right direction here?
CPU will be an i5-2500K

Depends on what you use your pc for. Please list your video preference and the rest of your system specs.

I was wondering if Intel Z68 northbridge was good for gaming. Plus if you want to know the Z68 has the integrated graphics that the H line had plus the overclocking ability of the P line. It also offers some sort of ssd integration and ability to save power by using the on-board instead of dedicated Video card when using less intensive processes (browsing the internet).

Here is a nice image of it's features- Link

Only two real differences between the P67 and Z68

The "Intel Smart Response Technology", an intelligent caching scheme that uses a small (20-64G) SSD as a cache to a selected hard drive. I examine Smart Response Technology in this article.
The "Intel FDI" (Flexible Display Interface) link between the processor and the chipset, culminating in the "Digital Display" section.
