Hey guys I really need some advice, I've been trying to figure out motherboards for like 2 weeks with no real luck! I have purchased everything for my computer except the mobo. The components are
Gtx570 (plan to sli down the line)
Haf 122 case
Intel i7 2600 1155pin
2x2gb ripjaw 1600mhz ram
1tb WD hd
Lite on DVD drive
850w corsair psu
I badly need to know which mobo to go for! I was looking at the Asus p8 p67 board but apparently it's only a micro atx card when I went to purchase it the guy pretty much laughed at me when I said I was going to sli with it. Can someone pls tell me if this one is ok? Or if not pls pls pls link one! I do plan on a bit of oc aswell thanks guys!!

There are Micro-ATX versions of the P8P67 boards, but there are also full-size versions as well.

If you want to go with a full-size ASUS board capable of SLI and overclocking, you have some choices:
P8P67 Evo
P8P67 Pro
P8P67 Deluxe
P8P67 WS Revolution
Sabertooth P67

The ones you want to avoid:
P8P67-M Pro
P8P67 LE

Also, if you really want to overclock you should get an i7-2600K processor. The i7-2600 can only be overclocked by a very small amount.

thank you SO MUCH for the info mate lifesaver!!

one more quick question! is this one going to be ok it only lists crossfire as being supported no mention of SLI

The one on the MSY site is one on the "avoid" list. It doesn't have all the features you want, and that's why it's cheaper.
