Need reccomendation for i5 motherboard

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am going to be coming into some money shortly, and am trying to put together a list for a new computer. It has been years since I have even looked at components (I think they just came out with dual core last time I built a computer) and I need some advice. I am trying to put together a mid-high range desktop mostly for gaming. I am looking at an i5-2500k or comparable processor and need advice on what motherboard to get. I think I will go with a nVidia card, maybe a GTX 470. Price should be around $200-$250 or less. Doesn't need to be the best but should be able to support SLI and be somewhat upgradeable.

It's The ASUS Maximus III Formula. It supports overclocking, SLI, Crossfire X and
anything else you can dream of.

The Asus P8P67 Pro, Asus P8P67 Deluxe, MSI P67A-GD65, or the Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD4. Good luck finding them though.
