Suggest me a motherboard?

Hey guys, Just needed help on a motherboard. My budget is 200$, of course preferably the least expensive mobo which will sufficiently meet my needs.

Mobo necessities:
-Big enough room to fit a large cpu cooler(tuniq cooler) and not get in the way of any other parts
-Crossfire Enabled, and be able to fit 2 cards
- support i7 950
- easy overclocking features.(overclock newb, this is for a new build)

  1. I would recommended the ASUS SABERTOOTH X58...
  2. I recommend you avoid asus.
    Intel or Gigabyte will yield reliability.
  3. any specific mobos I can get?
  4. I still recommend the ASUS SABERTOOTH X58 at your price range but if you aren't a fan of ASUS, it leaves you the Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R as your next best option.
  5. For one thing, Gigabyte is superior. No comparison.
  6. I happen to like ASUS. Of course, they certainly aren't for newbs. Anyway other than the Sabertooth I like this board

    ASRock X58 Extreme 3

    ASRock is a good board... Though for $10 more I would go with either Sabertooth or GA-X58A-UD3R (though not my recommendation :( )

    Biased? I don't know that it's bias.
    But quality control and customer service is the issue. That's based on actual real world hands on experience. And I will NEVER buy another Asus product.
