    I have this 2 choices, Asrock z68 extreme3gen3 and the Gigabyte Ga-z68xp-ud4.

    please dont take into account money, just performance.

    Gigabyte Ga-z68xp-ud4. no onboard video, no gen3

    Asrock z68 extreme3gen3. video onboard, gen3 but no looks so strong as the GA.

    Please help choose on this.. THANXXXXXXXX guys.

    I'd pick the Asrock too, the Gigabyte BIOS is one of the worst thing put into a motherboard to date.
    phobias23 and AlienIsGOD say thanks.

    Looks like Asrock is going for the clean sweep. They get my vote.

    Yeah, I'm not impressed with the Hybrid EFI BIOS, first time I fired it up I was like WTF? :wtf:
    Also Gigabyte seriously needs to dump the 1337 heatsinks on high end :shadedshu

    Both are very nice mobos but that asrock seems more praised here and it seems like the nicer one to me to.

    I'm going to say ASRock as well. Their latest boards all sound like a good bet. Good layouts and very nice features for the price. I'm not fond of Gigabyte's 3D BIOS.
