  1. They are about the same, but Gigabyte has also USB3 ports GA-H61M-USB3-B3.
  2. thanks
    but the asus also has usb3...
    i was more inclined to the asus because of gpu boost feature even though i am not entirely sure what this is.....

    do u still recommend asus..

    i will rely on the sandy bridge integrated graphics of i5...

    on a side note

    will an VERY old generic 900w psu be enough for
    500gb hard
    i5 2550k
    no individual graphic card

    thanks
  3. Z68 would be better choice, but its around $89.99 the cheapest : )
  4. this is the one with usb3 http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_1155/P8H61M_LEUSB3/#specifications

    I had Gigabyte, never problem with it and it run 24/7 and it is still running : ) 3/4 years later.

    Now I bought ASUS, because they didn't have the Gigabyte model I wanted, so I got ASUS P8Z68 V and it is great OC and stable as I know Gigabyte would be.

    I would say these 2 are the 2 top motherboard makers. But others are really close nowadays.
