Hard to say, I would probably buy the ASUS personally. If you want a cheaper board you might consider something like a Z68A-D3H as well. Tough to beat for $130.

Out of these selections.

- MSI P67CS-C43
- ASUS P8P67
- MSI P67A
- Gigabyte GA-P67A-D3

What do u think would be the best choice?
If you're going to push over 4.2ghz, I wouldn't touch any of those boards except the Asus. Not because it's a better board, but because it's the only one that will throttle your CPU to prevent VRM failure.

Interesting, will probably going to have to go with either that, the UD4 or something higher.

As you can see I'm trying to get a low cost board that could stand the 4.5Ghz-5Ghz range

Hey guys, I read on another site that it is possible to create a partition on your SSD to use for caching. With a 128gb SSD you could use 20gb for caching and the rest as a C: drive. This means that you could have 100% SSD speeds on the things you put on the SSD, and your hard drives get the boost as well. That sounds like one fast system.
