That is the only board that store has in stock at that price point. I'm not guaranteeing you anything though. I have heard ECS makes decent boards but I've only come across them twice as they are a relatively new company I believe.

wow man...you purchased laptop RAM and an h67 motherboard - the ram won't work and that motherboard doesn't allow overclocking and might be too weak for a 2500k anyways. plus why get the 550ti for $150? a 6870 would be a better choice

EDIT: just looked through this thread....and OP you need to do some research. regarding motherboards, the ASRock z68 extreme3 gen3 is an amazing budget board - goes for $125 on newegg. full support for future ivy bridge CPU's, PCIe 3.0, sli/crossfire, overclocking - the whole enchilada

that OCZ psu is also a great deal especially with the MIR card - i just purchased the same brand myself. reviews noted excellent performance but dinged cable length and modularity which i'm not concerned about

No SLi support though you can try the SLi Patch.

I'm liking the one Johnny doe posted, http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml?product_id=0371606 . What does everyone else think? And chances are I won't ever go SLI, in a couple years I will probably just replace the GPU
