I built my new system with the GA-H81M-HD3 because it was a very cheap board and seemed to offer a lot for the price. Now I am finding that i need more than 4 data ports so I am buying a different one. Either the GA-H87M-HD3 or the GA-H87M-D3H. Anyone with either of these boards who have any opinions of them or anyone who is very familiar with the chipsets that may know which is better please let me know. I haven't had any problems with my current board as far as funtionalliy goes and the D3H seems to be the most similar other then the data ports and it has 4 slots for RAM which doesn't matter to me. The HD3 is cheaper and i would rather go with that one if I can.

Either one will work. Both are on the recommended board list in the buyers guide, so make your choice based on your needs and budget.
