Exclamation GIGABYTE GA-MA74GM-S2H Motherboard VS. GIGABYTE GA-Z68XP-UD3P LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDM

I'm building a computer from scratch at the moment, and I'm trying to determine if I should use my exisiting motherboard(GA-MA74GM-S2H Motherboard) or upgrade to the GIGABYTE GA-Z68XP-UD3P LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDM
If i keep this current motherboard, what will i have to change in this build?
