15 2500K Upgrading,But SOOO many mobo choices

post #1 of 39
Thread Starter 
Im getting a i5 2500K Yeah for me

Problem is there are so many mobo choices i can't really decide

This is what i do Serf the net, Play games and ply around with oc'ing.

What im looking for is a full size board that has decent oc'ing support, SLI , sata 6gb's , 1 gigabyte lan port
Don't really care about usb3.0, bluetooth or wireless i dont use any of that stuff anyway
I would also like to be at $200 or less.

Thanks

I'm using the MSI GD65. Works great with my 2500k at 5.1Ghz lol. I run 24/7 at 4.6Ghz though

Hmmm the ASrock is sold out at newegg.
Cant find much of anything for gigabyte mobo's.(prefur)
The msi one looks decent but have never had one and it sounds like there could be problems with it.

I think they are all pretty good. I like the UEFI on mine, but if you're going to get it get the Pro vesion. It's only about $15 more and supports SLI as well as Crossfire.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131705 should do the trick. I like ASUS, and if you look around the forums on people System-signature, you'll see that many do too. With a budget of $200 I'd suggest the PRO model but it's sold out @ Newegg at the moment. Might be able to find it elsewhere.

I can put another vote in for the GD65, works great with my sig rig and have never had any hiccups. Main reason I purchased this motherboard was that during the recall it was one of the first boards with the B3 revision that had good ratings. If I purchased now, I may have purchased something else because all of the choices now, but either way I'm very content with my purchase.
