P67 Full ATX vs Z68M MicroATX?


I might sell my $115 Gigabyte P67X-UD3-B3 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128488) for a $100 ASRock Z68M (http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157270). This is mainly because I don't need all the features on the full ATX. Now, a few things I have to confirm first.

What would I be missing out on the P67 if I sold it for the MicroATX? The main reason I might get MicroATX is because of the support for integrated Intel CPU graphics.

I'm also worried about spacing. Here is my build:


My Gigabyte HD 6870 has 3 fans. Would a MicroATX cause spacing problems with heatsink + GPU/RAM placement? Or will I be fine?

Thanks, guys!

  1. If you won't miss the dual PCIe slots, the 4 memory slots, the SATA 3, and the extra expansion slots, you will be fine. But there's nothing special about the Intel graphics. I'm confused as to why, with a dedicated graphics card, you'd want the integrated garphics anyway.

    I'm confused as well. Why would you change?
