Confused on which board to go

Hello!

The only people I know who can help are the members of the Toms hardware community! So I have a build put together, so far its:

i7 2600k
vertex 3 max iops
8gb of corsair dominator
v8 coolmaster heatsink.

Now, im lost on the motherboard to go, its for a gaming build, I currently have a 570 gtx for the video.

what im looking at is:

GIGABYTE GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 (http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=353599&Sku=G452-0144)
or
GIGABYTE GA-Z68AP-D3 (http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1165562&Sku=G452-1047)

What are the differences? one seems to be 167 and the other 100. I would like a board that would allow me to OC to 4.5ghz safely, and from what ive read gigabyte does this.

I hope to hear back from you guys soon!

Thanks!
