Best Motherboard combo

What is the best motherboard to handle a Intel Core i5-4670K Haswell 3.4GHz LGA 1150 84W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics BX80646I54670K with an ASUS GTX760-DC2OC-2GD5 GeForce GTX 760 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card?

I am not opposed to overclocking and no limit on price expect I don't really want to exceed 250$.

Also, what should I be looking for with a power supply?

Thanks guys!

  5. The CPU and GPU won't bottleneck, will they?
  6. there will absolutely be no bottlenecks
  7. What is a good way to check?
  8. If GPU usage isn't at 99% while gaming then there is a bottleneck
    note : in some games you sill have bottlenecks anyway because they are CPU depending
  9. I updated my specs a little bit so I wanna make sure that my current MoBo will be okay with my cpu and gpu.
