What features are important in z68? Someone enlighten me as to why z68 > p67? I mean yea, it's newer so I'll get it.
But more importantly, what features differentiate z68 boards from others? What do I want to look for?
My friend isn't an enthusiast, he has ANOTHER friend helping him put it together.


I'm not in the know regarding features and quality of mobos at the moment. I know much about power supplies, cpu's, gpu's a bit but mobos I'm just kind of looking around at what other people think based on reviews :??:

$100 extra for bigger psu and the mobo can't be the ASROCk listed above since that doesn't have space for 2 pcix16
