I just received partially my components. Still missing the motherboard, the case and RAM.

Here's a quick question. I see there is 2*6 pin connectors on the GTX 560 Ti, am i suppose to connect them both?

Yea i was talking about the Gigabyte z68 board, but i was able to edit it. This is ridiclous, the total price i ended up paying is 1154$ with shipping,handling and taxes and i have 90$ of mail in rebate, so 1067$ lol. This is amazing

Im expanding my budget by 150$. I'll be using it to get a better GPU, the GTX 560 Ti (prolly going with either PNY/ASUS/EVGA/MSI)

Now im still hesitant when chosing the motherboard. I'll need some help.

GIGABYTE GA-Z68A-D3H-B3 (is 130$ too cheap?)

MSI P67A-GD55 (150$)

http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130573&Tpk=msi%20p67a-gd55

ASUS P8P67 (165$)

http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131705

Which one of these is the best bang for the buck mobo?

If u have a better mobo in the range of 130$-160$, feel free to suggest

Now i don't know which motherboard to pick...

For similar prices i can either get the H67 or the Z68. Should i just go with the z68 since it offers more features for like the same price?

Z68: http://www.newegg.ca/Pro...spx?Item=N82E16813128495
