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?)

or

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.

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

LOL yes PEST HAHA

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

Integrated PLX PEX8608 chip onboard to offer sufficient PCI-E lanes
2 x PCI Express 3.0 x16 slots

By adapting PCI-E 3.0 quick switch IC onboard, Fatal1ty Z68 Professional Gen3 supports the Next-Gen PCI-E 3.0!
PCI Express 3.0 can maximize the bandwidth for the next-gen PCI Express 3.0 VGA cards, provide ultimate graphics performance.

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