I'm reserving about $250 for the MOBo itself as the lower end ones and cheaper priced ones dont seem to be good for OCing/gaming. I want something that is easy to work with when OCing. Most of the decent ones are about $225 from what I'm seeing.

$250 will get you a decent mobo, interesting to see what prices will be on the egg etc and say a month down the track.
