If I Buy a low end Intel Board Lga 1156 socket like Intel BOXDP55WB, Intel BOXDH55HC,Intel BOXDH55TC etc. Can I overclock the i5 750, or do I need specific motherboards of msi or Gigabyte to do that.Also do these other mobo allow greater overclocking than intel ?

You can overclock with those Intel boards.

^ Agreed. HOWEVER, keep in mind Intel aims most f their boards at stability, as as such many OCing options are missing or reduced compared to the Gigabyte/ASUS/DFI,etc boards.

I am personally had not so good experience overclocking Intel's boards.

For general usage (without overclocking) they are rock solid, but if you
need a feature rich BIOS especially designed for overclocking, you would
better take a Gigabyte or Asus board.

Very true. I have seen one Intelboard without OC options at all. It was on my friend's son computer and he asked me to help him OC but I can not even see the option where I change FSB speed.

+1.

To the OP:
If you are on a tight budget there are lower priced options (~$80 ) from other mobo manufacturer like MSI, Biostar or ECS.

ECS boards also tend to be poor overclockers.

For the price, they are really not that bad. I got an ECS GF8200A that can OC a 720BE up to 3.6Ghz. But that is an AMD CPU. But I have no idea how it does in Intel so no harm to advice the OP to steer away from ECS in this case as there are lots of other choices out there anyway.

I think it's a bit of luck. Even some expensive motherboards are terrible OverClockers. I spent nearly 300 on an expensive board to upgrade my ASrock last year. Forgot which brand it was I think it was Asus. Anyways it did worse than my asrock budget board so I'm a bit skeptical nowadays when it comes to buying a new board. I am still using that budget board to this very day. Running x4 620 at 3.7ghz:)
