Best i5 2500k mobo for 200 Euros.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am building a new rig and the only parts I haven't decided about are the mobo and ram,so far I am getting a 580 Lightning and a 2500k.

I have no idea about chipsets,all I know is that I want a board that overclocks great.I don't care about extra stuff like onboard sound or graphics.

Budget is around 200 Euros,do you think it's enough for a good mobo?I would be happy if I could spend less smile.gif

So which are my options?Which is the best board for overclocking and "bang for the buck"?

Taking a quick look around the Egg, I came up with the Asus P8P67. An ASRock Fatal1ty P67 looks like it could do what you want, too. The professional model is a little pricey, but they didn't have the performance model on Newegg: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157240&Tpk=fatal1ty%20p67. Sorry about the prices being in Canadian, 200 euros worked out to about $280 Canadian.
