And would i go for the:

MSI Z77A-GD65

or

ASUS P8Z68 DELUXE/GEN3


They are the same price range, and the MSI looks like having a nice BIOS and a OC geni?

I agree. I have the HAF 922 and it's an awesome case. The CM Storm Scout is very similar and in your case I would choose that one instead because of the price unless you REALLY like the look of the HAF better. Also before you choose the powersupply go over to hardwaresecrets.com and read their reviews. They're the only site I've seen that does comprehensive testing and analysis of power supplies (down to the component level). I picked up a Rosewill Hive 650 for 71.99 after reading their review (they gave it a gold award) and so far it's been excellent. I concur with the general consensus if you're going to spend that much on processor and cooler you might as well go with the 2500k and a hyper 212+ cooler. The 2500k overclocks like a monster and fairly beats the 8150 in just about everything I've seen (and I love AMD chips...never thought I would recommend an intel chip). I bought the 6100 because the price/performance was great (it cost me $139) but if I could have gotten away with it without the wife *****ing at me I would have spent $100 more on my upgrade and bought the 2500k.

Both are quality motherboards. Unless there is a feature you like on certain board, I would just go for the cheapest.

ASUS has extra LAN, USB, and Firewire port. It also has legacy PCI slots.
MSI has onboard video connector and Lucid Virtu MVP. No legacy PCI slots but more PCIe x1 slots.

Is there a reason you want to spend so much on a motherboard? Are you planning on running SLI or Crossfire? Are you planning on doing some HEAVY overclocking? (can't really do that with the 2500k anyways since the bus speed is locked you can only adjust the multiplier). If not I would be looking at something more like these

or this

Both have great reviews and with the money you save you can put it towards a video card or SSD
