ASrock Z68 vs Gigabyte Z68MA

Hi all,

Fairly straight forward. The Gigabyte is $40 cheaper and has a $20 MIR.

Or

http://www.bestdirect.ca/products/237094/Z68%20Extreme3%20Gen3/ASRock/

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.

Thanks

  2. I understand the ASrock will provide future proofing with the PCI 3.0 support, but none of my other components can take advantage of that yet.

    Both these boards will SLI at 8x. Not sure what advantage the ASrock will offer with my current components.
