Hi all

I am currently deciding the MOBO for my new gaming rig

Option 1 - ASUS Maximus IV Gene-Z/GEN3
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Option 2 - ASUS P8P67 (REV 3.1)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Option 3 - ASUS P8Z68-V/GEN3
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I do not know what is the difference between P8P67/Pro/Evo and P8Z68-V/Pro/LE/LX

---

Other parts to be used
- Intel i5-2500K
- eVGA GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 core Classified
- Seasonic X760 760w 80 plus Gold Power Supply

Will keep SLI and SSD an option to expand in the future as I am building on a budget

Any suggestions and comments will be greatly appreciated

Thank you

I would go with the ASUS Z68-V, I've done a number of builds with it and it is a great motherboard, including for a NAS server with an Adaptec 6805 card that doesn't like UEFI supposedly.

Forget SLI for now, although it can be an option later. My preference would be an ATI card, more bang for the buck.

SSD is definitely worth the money if you can get a good deal -- it makes a huge difference.

Thanks for the reply. I've read reviews from websites about the boards, the Maximus board gets a bit more credit than others. But seems like from your personal experience, a Z68-V would do me best.

Sure the Maximus is a great board, but it won't do anything for you that the z-68V won't do at a lower price. It will overclock and run additional graphics cards, etc. IMO the money would be best spent on other upgrades.

Got it, thanks again bud. :D 

So Z68-V is good enough already for my build right? No need V-Pro or V-Pro Gen3 etc.
Because there are Z68-V LE, LX, Pro...

And only the LE/LX ones are actually cheaper than Maximus IV Gene-Z, V Pro is actually a little over Gene-Z in price, Z68-V it self is same price as Maximus IV Gene-Z. But I'm guessing even if they are at same price range, you'd still pick Z68-V, right?
