I hear the Z77 boards will have newer features and better OCing abilities being the new Enthusiast series.
Yeah this Intel stuff is overwhelming to say the least, but it's going to be fun following it!

Hey im no expert, but i have had my asus p8z68 up as high as 5 ghz oc before,its fairly stable at 4.7 too. Pretty sure the multi is not limited on my board.Z68 does offer some future proofing far as i know.

This may sound stupid guys, but the "K" series are not limited to a max multiplier of 57? even if you got a crazy reaping CPU the theorical maximum should be (5985MHz = 105MHz BClk and 57 Multiplier) only if your going to make a suicide benchmark run or keeping highly overclock 24/7 (4.8-4.9Ghz) the P67 will worth it. On the other side as the others said before Z68 is more adaptative to user where you can use QuickSync, Lucid, and overclock at the same time :)
