If money is not an issue then the asus maximus IV Z68. Personally, i'd cut some corners and save a few dollars and drop the cash on a asrock extreme4 gen3 motherboard. The savings would net you a nice ssd. A good i5 2500k chip and this board would absolutly be a solid beast of a gaming rig.

I don't think I have the money for the maximus IV Z68. The link I posted above is actually the matx asus board. Any more opinions or advice?
