Hello,
I am trying to choose between these two motherboards . Has anybody had particularly good or bad experiences with either board? Reliability and future proofing are more important than outright performance.
My proposed system will have i5-2400 processor, HD5770 graphic card and 8GB ram.

Cannnot get Amazon motherboards either. They only ship to 48 US states.
I would prefer USB 3 and perhaps e-sata for futureproofing. P61 cards do not seem to have those.

Looking at H61 motherboards, some have USB3 but I have not seen any with SATA 6 GB or e-sata. Do they exist?
Also most (all) P67 boards are full ATX, H67 boards seem to be M-ATX, and some H61 boards are ITX.
Since my wife would prefer as small a case as possible and would like a reasonably powerful machine, are there H67 ITX boards?

One possibility is Silverstone SG-05 case with ASUS P8H61 motherboard and HD5770. I will have to get the bigger power supply version.

Do H61 boards support SSD's? I might install one later.

ASUS P8H67-I DELUXE (REV 3.0) LGA 1155 Intel H67 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Mini ITX Intel Motherboard

Sure, no problem with SSD; just add drivers.
