do you have a psu, case, cpu cooler (if your overclocking) ? All factors when building a system. Please remember all mobos are not made equal. Some are not meant to overclock and cheaper ones will NOT TAKE KINDLY to over volting on the mobo.

If you already have parts please fill out your system specs so we can better assist you.

What is your budget for the new Mobo and RAM? If you buy the cheapest Mobo, it sometimes gets hard to OC.
This is the cheapest Mobo I found Z68

I just bought an Asrock P67 Extreme4 Gen3.

I heard that it and the Z68 model were one of the best bang for the buck boards. Not the best you can buy, but fairly awesome.

I payed $154 on Newegg, fairly cheap in my opinion. Some things you don't want to completely skimp on.
