Hello,

I'm building a complete system from the ground up, and am trying to find a good motherboard.

Here's the main parts i'll be using:
CPU : i5 760
Graphics: Radeon 6870
RAM: 8GB (1600MHz min)
Hard Drive: Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 ST31000528AS 32MB 1TB
+ SSD - most likely OCZ Vertex II E Series, or a Crucial Real SSD C300

USB 3.0 and SATA 3.0 slots would be good too, especially as the Crucial SSD is SATA 3.0.
Im planning on adding another 6870 in crossfire in the future, and will most likely overclock the cpu.

I have searched for motherboards but in all honesty there are a huge amount available, and this will be my first proper system build.
I was thinking of something along the lines of a Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD4, but dont mind something a bit more, but not too expensive.

Any motherboards i should go for, or particular features i should look for/avoid?
All suggestions welcome, thanks.
