I just bought a asus p8p67 ws revolution for $209 from new egg, open box deal. Everything was brand new, only thing I didnt recieve was the box. I got my i5 2500k to 5ghz cause of that board. It supports 3 way sli if you ever decide to go the nvidia way. Give it a look.

Mainly for gaming? Go for the Core i5 2500K on the LGA 1155.

Kind of overspending like crazy on the board though. Why you need such an expensive board for?

*Looks at AX 1200 in sig*....seems you like to overspend on lots of things... that PSU is WAAAAYYYYY overkill.
