Need Motherboard and CPU Advice

Last response: in Motherboards

Just upgraded my GPU to a GTX 570 from a GTX 280 since the piece of crap burned out after 2 years. The problem is, the rest of my computer is old as well.

What is a good motherboard and CPU combination for a GTX 570? I like to game with full graphical settings.

Depending on your budget a SB cpu and 1155 platform is the way to go.

My budget is around 200-250 for the CPU and 100-150 for the Motherboard.

Is there a good motherboard that will let me SLI another GTX 570 if I need to?

That's perfect for SB. You'll need DDR3 Ram too. $229 for i5-2500K. $150 for any ATX LGA 1155 that runs two PCI-e lanes at 8x/8x. ASUS, Gigabyte, ASRock, MSI, EVGA, Biostar, in that order of preference for me. Let me know if I forgot anyone (I meant to leave out Jetway, Foxconn, & ECS).
