Hi guys I am looking for a upgrade, the only thing that I am going to upgrade is my motherboard and CPU. I am going to keep my 5970+5870

Ok so, so far I want the I7 2600K but I dont know which motherboard should I get

I want a motherboard where I can put my two video cards without a problem and a good Overclocking motherboard, and if the motherboard has room for another video card for physx that will be better.
Please guys I am looking for a GOOD GOOD motherboard prince range 100-400


I am new on intel motherboards and CPU so guys please I really need help.

Get one of the asus ones that will come out. Overclock well and have the uefi bios. Its hard to say yet because there arent that many ppl with these chips for obvious reasons.

Keep in mind you have a 5970 and I am not sure if that uses an entire x16 lane but most boards for the SB chips are x8 x8 so try and find a x16 x16 asus board.
