Need help choosing a motherboard!!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So I am in the process of making a new gaming PC. Currently I have chosen a gtx 560 ti graphics card and an intel i5 2500k processor and have plans to do some overclocking. I will probably have a 600W power supply. But I really have no idea what motherboard to get. I plan to buy from pccasegear, here are my options: http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=138_711_1183&vk_sort=1

What one should I get and why? Try to keep the price reasonable as I am trying to not go over $900 for the total system price. Help will be greatly appreciated.

gen3 tho

Same. if budget is your route then either of those boards are kickasss overclockers just check out the official club discussion on the asrock z68's everyone that has one loves it I am going to buy the z68 fatal1ty pro gen3 as that seems to clock very easily but the budget boards clock almost aswell.
