Intel newbie question!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am going to pre apologize for a few very newbie questions. But I am converting from AMD to Intel and I have never owned an Intel board/CPU in my life. Basically what I am looking to get is a board that can handle the i7 2600k sandybridge. I'd also like to overclock the i7 to the max (I have watercooling) as well as I'd like to have a mobo with UEFI (or EFI) on it but not required. I'm really wondering what anyone would suggest to me as in a newer intel motherboard (less than 200$ would be fantastic).

PS - Also gonna add in that I do have an SSD, and I've heard things like the P67 uses something weird with SSD's and the x68 uses something with video encoding? (which I don't care about video encoding)

You want to check out the ASUS P8P67 PRO motherboard. Probably one of the most sold and popular P67 boards in the world. It has UEFI and has a nice price.

Alright, thank you for the suggestion, it actually works out good because it has a combo deal on newegg with i7 2600k
