    Intel mobo is great, will last.

    But they ear limited in features and are not build for overclocking.

    Get Asus P8Z68-V and never look back!

    I have that board too, BTW : )
  3. But better yet, get this one and have the advantage of the latest greatest : )

    Well, OP is asking for the Z68.

    Z68 is compatible with IB.

    Flashing the BIOS is so easy these days,

    it took all about 20min to my mother in law to do it.

    So, I think the Moazzam_Pkanyone can do it too, if needed.

    i mean picking z77 chipset is much better idea for the OP but if he can.
  9. Well, it is if u can get the advantage of the new features.

    But there is nothing wrong with the use of the Z68.

    That's why it is cheaper. The CPU speed and performance is the same.
  10. He asked for opinion on those 2 boards.

    I also recommended the Z77. But its all about the budget : )
  11. ok. so let the OP decide?

    Sure, its almost the same as Z68 if u don't use it.

    Do u know about any review that compares Z68 vs Z77 and 1 IB CPU?

    Post link if u do, I'd read it.

    I think that the performance numbers will be the same, for speed or OC in most tasks.
  13. Guys, Thank You for Your Appreciable Comments. I have Decided that Which One should I Get.. As Suggested by Nikorr I would Go with Asus P8Z68-V as It's Cheaper then P8Z77-V and About Same in Performance. About Bios.. It's Easy to Update.
