Marvin Integrity vs Milgard

Thought we had things narrowed down to Marvin integrity wood ultrex for our new house (about 3k less then Marvin premiums, which we would LOVE to get) but have also been looking around at some others too. Milgard seems to be very similar to the Integrity wiht offering fiberglass exterior and wood interior. The hardware styles even look the same. I do like how Milgard has a triple glaze option too. We live in north Iowa and are building a house with R-40 walls and R-60 ceilings, so we want a good window as well, which is why we are looking at the triple glaze option.
Does anyone have any experience with Milgard windows? We do not have a dealer near us, but have seen the integrity first hand. The wood ultrex came in at around $650 average for the windows only.

Just for clarity, the wood Integrity window is a wood window with an Ultrex extrusion cladding, just like a regular aluminum clad wood window.

RE: Marvin Integrity vs Milgard

Actually it is a fiberglass exterior window with wood clad on the interior only. It is not a solid wood window wrapped with fiberglass ( not similar to a Marvin Premium....wood wrapped in extruded aluminum).

lzerac, the image clearly shows a hybrid window, not like what I described, so the salesman gave me wrong information, my bad.
I thought it odd that it would simply be clad with Ultrex, but he insisted.
Thanks for the clarification!
