Re: ASRock Z68 Gen3 Mobo's
I have considered that. But I have a sata 6 1TB Caviar handy, my son actually does a lot of video creation at times, and a small modestly-priced ssd working in conjunction with the Caviar might work. Plus, it would be fun to see how it compares in real life.

But so far, a good board as best as I can tell, and at a very reasonable price given the features. Off to work.
