Edit. Ok Don't know if I can wait, itchy trigger finger. Unfortunately the ASRock is not on their list to receive $40 off mobo. I'm eyeballing the ASUS P8Z68-V Pro Z68 after discount will be $169. I'll sleep on it.
I wouldn't stress over it. Just get the cheapest board that meets your features requirement and does not have a large percentage of negative reviews on NewEgg and other sites. P67 is fine if you have no use for Intel's Quick Sync or SSD caching with Z68 (most gamers have no use for them).
PCI-Express 2.0 x8/x8 bandwidth for SLI and CrossFire is plenty fine with modern cards, and you'll likely move onto another board before an increase in bandwidth becomes highly desirable.
