    Hey there, Personally I would buy the ASUS board. I have never much cared for the intel ones they always seem to be a bit outdated with their technologies such as VRM's and the capacitors are the old type and the layout always just seems to look like it has been thrown together. They are probably perfectly useable parts but they just never look as good quality as the ASUS ones do. Also ASUS boards are usually highly recommended on this forum.

    definately asus, the programs that come with the board will be helpful to make it a silent machine when you want it to be. when you overclock the cpu, there is some black chokes put it so you get the constant power you need to the cpu. asus does have a high reputation for motherboards as well as gigabyte.

    But intel db65al has 4 DDR3 slots whereas Asus p8h67-m le has only 2.

    Well to be honest you often don't need any more than around 4GB of RAM anyway these days but you can also get 2 x 4GB sticks and have 8GB of RAM which would easily be enough for almost everyone. If you are planning on using a 32-bit opperating system then you will not be able to use more than 3.5Gb of RAM anyway. In short there is often no real point any more of needing 4 RAM slots.

    just out of curiosity, you could have compared the intel board with the asus p8h67-m board, or the p8p67-m board, these ones have crossfire capabilities, if you suddenly felt like being a LAN gamer. and they have 4 ram slots, im on 4gb and have no problem running games +internet radio+xfire+steam at the same time,still having memory to spare.
    with the boards i mention, you can add another 5770 for a cheap graphics upgrade and have 4x1gb sticks
