So we should all buy Intel/Nvidia and forget about AMD because it's a "budget solution"?

ASRock offers great, high quality motherboards at relatively low prices, and have fantastic reviews to back them up. The ASRock P67 Extreme4 fits his budget perfectly and will function just as well as the Sabertooth (at ~$50 less). There is no reason for him not to get it.

One person already mentioned it, but the Asus P8P67-M Pro seems to be a good board. I run my 2500K at 4.3GHz. I topped it out at 4.7GHz but OC'ing with these seems to be limited by processor more than by MB, if I have been reading correctly. It also maintains SLI/Crossfire compatibility and gives you the m-ATX option.

Probably in case of Intel, but not in case of Nvidia. However I am not here to start yet another ATI vs Nvidia flamewar.

Also about reviews, official reviews aren't worth ****e. The only ones are worth it are the detailed user reviews.

But no need to get all upset now. He was looking for a 150$ mobo. And I was just suggesting a somewhat more expensive alternative. In the end he's got to choose for himself. And I suggest not taking anyone's advice for an absolute truth, including my own. Gotta think for yourself, kid.

I'll give my two cents... Go for the Asrock Extreme4. It's the best bang for the buck motherboard, and it doesn't hurt that the heatsink design and board layout are pretty awesome.
