I'm new to PC building... this is going to be my first build. Anyway, I'm getting really overwhelmed by what motherboard I should get. The processor I've chosen is a 4670k, along with a GTX 770 4GB. I intend on doing some overclocking with the two... So, what motherboard that is reasonably priced would you guys suggest?

What would the PC be used for, gaming,editing, etc. ? Whats your budget?

I'm using it for gaming, and that's honestly about it. For the motherboard itself, I don't want to spend much more than 150-160 dollars. I just want it to be reliable, and overall a good buy.

ASUS Maximus VI Hero always gets the recommendation if it's on sale, but generally it could be in your price range.

Other recommendations would be ASRock Z87 Extreme4, MSI Z87-GD43/45, one of the Gigabyte Z87D3H? (Not sure on Gigabyte boards), or an ASUS Z87-PLUS/PRO
