  1. The P8P67 M Pro is essentially a reduced P8P67 Pro in Micro ATX form so while you will have reduced bells and whistles, you will by and large get the same performance. The P8Z68 V/V-Pro is a standard ATX board with all the features of a Z68 chipset. If you want the transcoding and SSD caching support of the Z68 then it is a better board to get and obviously more expensive.

    Not many are M-ATX fans, particularly if the need is for performance, for the extra $30 you may rather want to get the P8P67 Pro.

    If I were you and had the componants that you wanted to build on, the P8P67 Pro is a better option, you will get similar if not better performance for $40+ less.

  5. In regards to selecting motherboards, like power supplies, You should always buy for the purpose that you immediately want to achieve rather than 4-5 years down the line. A Z68 has good features but why pay for features that you will not exploit, the P8P67 pro is pretty much the novus classicus of higher end boards today.
