Summary: Im not going to go into detail about this MOBO. Ill only say that it has worked GREAT for what I need it for. Average gaming and web surfing, with some digital art work, including photography and video. I am using an i3 2100 and 8GB of RAM. This MOBO has served me well for over a year now. Did I mention I purchased it at Micro Center for $79 with a mail in $15 rebate? It was an open box special. So I paid less than $65 for this MOBO.
Very nice, good price, one potentially important flaw

Summary: I like ASUS motherboards, and used the big brother to this one (the P8Z68V-Pro) in my main computer. I got this one for what will be almost $100 less than that which is a great deal given that this board will do just as well if you don't want multiple graphics cards. Before mentioning specific pros/cons of this board (esp as compared to other ASUS boards using this chipset) I should say that in general I like working with ASUS boards.
Summary: I bought this mobo after having 2 failures of the P8Z68-v Pro, a board that costs £150.00. Honestly I can see no reason now to purchase a more expensive mobo for the z68 chipset, this has all the things you need at a great price. It does however still have the uefi graphical bios which was what failed on the 2 pro boards, in both cases the board locked and would not post, stopping at the graphics test, there was no way to recover the bios as there was no screen output.
