    Do you plan to overclock? If not, get a H67 motherboard - they are far better value.

    If you do, then you need Z68. One of the boards you listed is P67 and two are exactly the same. Of the ones you listed, only the top one is half good and based on reviews I've seen, all of those boards lose out to P67 boards in most tests.

    Based on your lack of answer to the question on overclocking, you only need a H67 motherboard.

    FYI, LE = light edition.
