My System Specs

Default Need to pick a motherboard for a 3570k

I will be upgrading from a 955BE, I only have 1 hdd and 1 DVD, but I will get an ssd eventually, I have a 7850 2 gb and eventually will get the second one so I would like pci 3 x8 x8 crossfire, the only things that need to plug into the moterboard are front panel audio, USB 2.0, my speakers, and a USB mouse and keyboard.

The ones I am looking at are the gigabyte z77x-ud5h, the asrock z77 extreme6, the msi z77a-gd65, and the Asus p8z77-v pro

I would want to overclock to around 4.5ghz so I would like a good board for overclocking(have a hyper 212+)

I also would not mind getting the cheaper versions of these boards as long as they support what I listed above and would provide me with a good overclock/ user experience

Thanks in advance for any help!

ASUS Z77 Sabertooth. Great overclocker, super stable and best warranty around. I absolutely love mine

+1 for the sabertooth. I have one coming this afternoon. It will be worth the little extra $$ for a quality board. (I've been dissapointed in my last few boards.... gigabyte *cough*cough)
