Recommend Mobo

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
After a little advice in relation to what Mobo I should install in my new build, I have read a heap of reviews but am still somewhat undecided. My intention for the new rig is gaming, will be running a 26 or 27k CPU, with an over lock to approx 4.5 in a HAF X case. Will initially run a gtx 580 with intention to run sli a bit further down the track. Will include 12 gb ram and dual hdd ( 1 x ssd). Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated!

I would recommend eithe one of these motherboards:

Asus P8P67 PRO
Asus P8Z68 V GEN3 (V PRO has extra sata ports and other features I think)
Asrock P67 Extreme4 GEN3
Asrock Z68 Extreme3 GEN3

Either one of those would suffice, Z68 chipset allows for onboard GPU (Lucid Vitu) and SSd caching, if that doesn't appeal to you then get a P67 motherboards listed above. GEN3 is PCI-E 3.0 compatibility, I don't think it'll be fully utilized until keplar or something so it's not big of a feature for now.

Hope that helps

Also what's your budget?
