Just don't think about it, its a sick deal! 195 shipped, cannot go wrong with that. Or if you wait for another day, he will probably knock off 5 bucks, but its a risk as it may not be available lol. I did that once and lost out with El donko. But very next time I snagged a Galaxy 470 off him quick.

Assuming both were the same price... I need to know ASAP.!!!

THanks!
I have the MSI Z77A-GD65 and I am very pleased with it. I believe the only difference between the GD65 and GD80 is thunderbolt connection which you probably will not use. I haven't used the P8Z68 but I did have a Maximus IV Gene - Z in the past and I was equally as pleased.

If I were you I would load both boards into the newegg comparison feature(which is frickin sweet!) and use that to help your decision. ALso I think the MSI looks far more stylish, but thats just my opinion.

It's ok. It's more than I wanted to spend. the GD65 I can get for $100. The P8Z68-V I paid $120 for. I see that the GD65 doesn't have wifi and will probably be the deal breaker for me.

That's what the guy on kijiji said. I hope so lol.

I guess I don't need wifi. Noticed neither of the boards I'm looking at come with it.

Well, I just picked up the MSI Z77A-GD65. I must say I love the look of it moreso than the Asus P8Z68-V Pro.

I'm going to put the P8Z68 up for sale. :D
