  1. Z68 - ASUS P8Z68-V PRO
    P67 - P8P67 PRO (REV 3.1)

    What other 'needs' SLI, SATA, etc?

    Example 3-WAY + PhysX - ASUS P8P67 WS REVOLUTION
  2. Yes, I could have provided more info. I would want:
    SATA 6GB, USB 3.0, eSATA, plus the usual stuff. For video, I just need dual-monitor capability, not SLI.

    I think you are about right on those two Asus models you suggested. I have always liked their products, and Puget Systems uses them so they must be topnotch. Thanks!

    Both have everything you need {SATA 6GB, USB 3.0, eSATA} and 12 Phase for low vCore for OC. The ASUS P8Z68-V PRO with it's QuickSync is probably a better option, and there's a PCIe 3.0 version ASUS P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3.

    Good Luck! :)
