    I think a z68 board is best,p67 won't support the built in graphics in the CPU,maybe go for cheaper 2600k and oc it? Rather than the 2700k? You will need to look at each mb's specifics and choose the one that's best for you,I would also invest in a good quality sata3 ssd and take advantage of the Intel sata3 ports.Remember that x79 (socket 2011) will be released November/december so that might push z68 prices down,also some good deals will be available after Christmas in the January sales if your prepared to wait?

    To further complicate your decision, it might be worthwhile to wait for the Ivy Bridge cpu to go with a Z68 motherboard. Right now Ivy Bridge is scheduled to be released sometime in March 2012. Your best bet will be to go with a Z68 motherboard that is "certified" to be fully Gen3 functional, not just Gen3 compatible.

    A web search using: Ivy Bridge vs Sandy Bridge
    will explain the added benefits with Ivy Bridge.

    A web search using: msi gen3 press release
    will detail the hardware requirements for a "genuine" Gen3 motherboard.
    There are at least two TweakTown threads that deal with this issue.

    I think none of these boards support Quck Sync Video, so if you do a lot of video transcoding and want to use it you should find another board.

    if your not bothered about gaming/video encoding then the z68 ud7 would be my choice,you can still play some games with the built in gpu but not the big modern games
