    Don't overlook the Asus P8P67 WS Revolution and the EVGA P67 FTW.

    Dunno about the Fatal1ty board, but I can tell you from experience that the Asus MIVE is an excellent board, I can totally recommend it to anyone ;)

    Whichever board you pick, good luck :)

    I say go with the ASRock. Sure, the USB controller on mine is turning to crap but it's been around longer than the XBOX360 and it's even survived the *gasp* Goodwill as-is bin, so it's all good. (speaking brand-wise of course but ASRock is owned by ASUS, so who cares?)

    I run the MIVE and it's crazy but then again so is every other ROG board.

    i guess its return to what you are looking for, features
    make a list what you need from a board, like OC capability, SLI/crossfire (dual, triple or quad), features, and warranty of course

    Well, unless you are an extreme overclocker, I sure as hell wouldnt bother with the MIVE. Its a nice board, I own one (and use DI/LN2 with it). But there is not even close to a need to buying a $365 board when a $200 board will suffice. My vote is P67 Fatality (owned one too).

    Go with that if you don't really need the extra features (and the red/black theme) of the Maximus Extreme/Fatal1ty Professional.

    And you get to save some money too.

    The Z68 Pro is almost the same price as the Asrock Fatality.

    I am starting to get excited about sandy bridge, and am considering the Asrock Extreme6 more than this fatality board... I dont want NF200 chip. Not many or none at all comparisons between the 2 boards. Exciting! :)

    Fatality doesn't have the NF200. Only 3 P67 boards have it

    Maximus IV Extreme
    UD7
    WS Revolution

    LOL yes PEST HAHA

    ASrock board doesnt have NF200 cause it uses a PCIex 3.0 Chip

    SOURCE

    My hats off to ASRock, They have became a great company and I have been a fan for a while
