depends on personal preference, of course there better as far as low end and high end and also options but a decent price board would perform well. I personally like asrock because I have had nothing but good things from them, but alot of people prefer an asus or gigibyte or even MSI , depends on if that board has best options for you. are you looking for great overclocking ?what is the purpose for the pc? Maybe a little more info i could recommend my opinion on motherboard.

Like I said looking to run i5-2550k. Overclocking while still running SWTOR on max settings. Probably something along the lines of 16Gb 240Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 as well.
