ASrock Z68 vs Gigabyte Z68MA Tags: Motherboards ASrock Gigabyte Last response: May 17, 2012 8:35 PM in Motherboards Share Sillybearito May 17, 2012 7:22:29 PM Hi all, Fairly straight forward. The Gigabyte is $40 cheaper and has a $20 MIR. http://www.bestdirect.ca/products/235031/GA%2DZ68MA%2DD... Or http://www.bestdirect.ca/products/237094/Z68%20Extreme3... Is the ASrock worth the extra $60? I understand that it's a better mobo. Using a Core i5 2500k and a GTX 560 Ti which I may SLI in the future. My budget is fairly restrictive.

Both these boards will SLI at 8x. Not sure what advantage the ASrock will offer with my current components. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
