  1. I personally would always pick a Gigabyte Mobo over an Asus as my PC building experience of 20 years has been that Asus Mobos are rushed to market often with many operational issues that may never get fixed. You're also likely to find that Asus has little if any customer support.
  2. The first link is broken, brings you to newegg page with following error:

    "You must first designate which items to compare by clicking on the appropriate check box in the product listing."

    So you want to know which you should go with: GA-Z68XP-UD3 or Maximus IV?

    Pros for the GA-Z68XP-UD3:

    1.) More stuff: Firewire, +2 PCIe x1, +2 PCI, +2 SATA III (6Gb/s)
    2.) $30 cheaper.


    Pros for the Asus Maximus IV:

    1.) ROG connect (Gigabyte board doesn't have)
    2.) 2200MHz memory (Gigabyte - 2133MHz, Asus - 2200MHz) Not really much of a pro
    3.) Better overclocking performance (not sure of this, but I ran into a few things that led me to believe the board is good for overclocking)

    Basically I would go with the GA-Z68XP-UD3, unless you really want ROG connect. If you want a higher overclock then you might want to look into which board would be better for that, but since you didn't give any indication of what your priorities are then I would go with the Gigabyte board.
  3. Ok so

    Compare:

    I would go with the Gigabyte combo.

    Personally I prefer GSkill and Hitachi over Corsair and Seagate. Also I think the Gigabyte bundle has a better case than the Asus bundle. As for the PSU's I am ambivalent.
