Board for 2500k?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So I'm about to by a new computer. Idea is 2500k with dual GTX 470, possibly adding a third at a later point since it seems to scale pretty well.

Now, based on what I've read people seem to recommend (of the ASUS boards), the IV Extreme or P8P67 PRO, depending on budget and how much one wants those extra features / small performance boost. The P8P67 is not an option if I want to go 3-way sli though, is it? Unfortunate, since the Extreme is twice as much and I really don't care about most of the "features".

Recommendations?

If you are going three way you have 3 choices, P8P67 WS Revolution (best bang for buck), UD7, or Maximus IV (needless waste of money)
