Basically, when the Intel chipset present on the first SandyBridge/Socket 1155 mobo's was released, it contained a bug where it was possible for the SATA ports present on the board to fail.

Because of the bug, they were recalled and the vendors released new revisioned mobo's with 'Gen3' added, as in they no longer had the bug.

A link to one of the many articles regarding this bug here

z68 is for SandyBridge processors which with a BIOS upgrade can run IvyBridge processors.
z77 is intended for IvyBridge processors and contain PCIE 3.0 slots but they can run SandyBridge too.

as far as I know, the 'z' or 'p' or 'h' is to be able to address the iGPU on the SB/IB.
One has slots on the motherboard for VGA/DVI, the other doesn't. If you're using a dGPU (basically any videocard other than the built-in one on the processor), it's all equal.

Would you say that z68 deluxe and the z77 deluxe would be equal if you use other then the built-in ?
I think both have pcie 3,0 and both can run same processors.
Imo they shouldve told me that they would like to switch to z77 since they didnt have the z68 or am i wrong?

Since you know what the issue is, why not open your search to any online retailer, buy the board of choice you want, and replace it yourself? You should be able to save a lot of money that way.

I would do that but i got warranty and they were going to replace the motherboard with something equivalent to the one i had since they didnt have the z68 deluxe motherboard, so he was trying to rip me off by giving me the earlier mentioned gigabyte motherboard

One more reason to build your next one yourself. You have total control over what goes in it...at the time of build and during later upgrades.

Based on your earlier link, you have plenty of choices. I can understand being under warranty and letting them replace it.

I did build it my self.. but i got a "bad" deluxe motherboard, that is why they wanted to change it.. but the wierd thing is why they cannot send it to asus.. i bet asus would send them back a new one.. when i asked them why they couldnt do that they said, because we dont sell that motherboard anymore? but what does that have to do with anything? I said but cant you guys order a new one? still same answer "they cannot order something they are not selling anymore"

You are confusing me, to be honest. If you built the PC yourself, then how would you have a system warranty? When I say "build it yourself", I mean not through a store. I mean buy all the parts yourself and assemble it.

Now, if we skip past that confusion, have you tried going through Asus directly to see if they can replace the board?
