My System Specs

Default New Mobo/CPU/power supply...

Been getting BSODs since last week, not sure why... PRetty randomly but still a regular occurence.

I'm tempted to replace everyting I have not replaced yet. My TX750 is 6 years old, my i5-750 has been running @ 3.4 for 3 years...

So I need a SLI Motherboard for my 560ti448s and a new CPU. Ram was replaced 6 months back with 8gb of G.Skill.

Used for gaming and browsing only.

This is what I was thinking of getting, all local to me and priced ok.

Pretty sure I will go for another TX750 for power supply. It's been good to me.

135$ after rebates...

The mobo is standard stuff, should be good for a mild overclock and be done with.

Any other suggestions?

First thing I would do before dropping coin would be to test that newer memory etc.

Second thing I'd look at is second-hand for sandy or ivy to see if you can pick-up a bit of a bargain.

Other than that.. nothing bad with that at all.
I do like the Asrock boards as my experience with them so far has been good (used 4 of their z77 boards so far) but then I also tend to go for whatever is easier to RMA, just in-case of any problems. (RMA to retailer here not manufacturer for most things.)

Just to add, I also swapped memory with 2 known good sets(wifes PC and a spare 4gb I have) and put it in another PC also. Memory is "known good" at this point.
