    Those are the cheapest and I only looked at asus and gigabyte z68. You can easily see "USB 3" printed on the mobo next to the connection.

    It also says in the specs, internal I/O connectors.
  4. ah wtf, i searched and filtered z68 and 1155 and those didnt show up for me. crud. are they basically the same as the other ones i posted in terms of the other features?

    EDIT: now that i look at it, the one i just bought has usb 3 printed on it, and an empty space where the header would be on that other model i guess
  5. Both the gigabyte boards support sli, both the asus do not. The xp-ud3 that I linked to only has hdmi onboard. Other than that, they are all about the same.
  6. ok thanks for the help. im fine without sli support. ill go for the asus one you linked. much appreciated
