Get this one...with rebates its 164.99 a tad bit more than your $150 budget, but it has full SLI/CF potential. with PCI-E x8/x8. The other $150 boards usually have PCI-E x16/x4 only.

Well put... haha better than how I can say it

People that post reviews on newegg.com are usually people that don't know what they are talking about. OCN is a forum with knowledge and if you are here the first place you know you want good info.

Good recommendation, a lesser brand, but a full function board...and looks good too haha

With shipping, he's up another $7.87 to start.

If he goes with the ASRock P67 EXTREME4 (B3) from superbiiz.com right now, he can get a combo deal with an i5 2500k and use the coupon code CHAMPS and get his CPU and motherboard shipped for $344.98.

I've used ASRock motherboards in the past and they've been rock solid. This one has good reviews and a great price and feature set. There is a group here that you can go to to read experiences of people with that specific board and ask questions:

Yes OP do this instead.

Its a good board, and OC well with the i5-2500k.

Make sure you get a good air cooler.

yes they all will fit. its just the socket bracket that comes with the cooler that you bolt onto the board. H60/80 has low cpu cooler heatsink.

Its the big ass air coolers that you worry about clearance.

yeah, the low profile is one of the draws, especially for Raven users like me. However I am still unsure if it has enough room so that it won't sit on the capacitors.

@OP
I've been researching about upgrading to Sandy too and so far my shortlist is...
Asrock P67 Extreme 4
Asrock P67 Extreme 6
