Windows 7: Mobo choice

30 Jun 2011   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Mobo choice

I'm torn between 2 Asus motherboards.

The P8P67 REV 3.0 & The P8P67 Deluxe.

Just wanted some other technicians opinions on it.

It's to go with a new i7 2600K if that helps.

More leaning towards the deluxe, but is it worth the price?

Thanks in advance

You're asking a question that no one is really able to answer but you. Go to a site like Newegg, and compare them side by side, feature by feature. Once you hammer out the differences, only you can decided if the higher cost one justifies the price or not. That isn't something we'll be able to help you with.

I went for the deluxe, because of more features/ports/expansion.

See, that's what I meant. None of us would have known of those extra features or ports are important to you. On my system, I have no plans to run two video cards, so extra PCI-E x16 slots would be a waste of money for me. I would never need more than 4 SATA ports, so that again, could be a waste if a higher end board offered more. My point being, your needs and wishes are unique, so you know them better than anyone. I didn't even get into financial or budget discussions, either. You had tow good boards to choose form, so I'm sure you'll be happy with it.
