For simplicity sake (don't want to waste any more time doing research), I have found 4 fairly popular motherboards that are relatively within price range.

If it absolutely HAD to be picked between these 4, which one will you choose? If can't just pick one then pick two. :) 

Some relevant background for my build:
-New build with i5-2500k
-Will overclock (nothing over the top)
-Will use 16GB of Ram
-Not planning to do any SLI or CrossFireX, but still want the option


Will appreciate some help here! :hello: 

Choices:

1) ASRock P67 EXTREME4 (B3)

2) MSI P67A-GD65 (B3)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

3) ASUS P8P67 PRO (REV 3.0)
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...

4) GIGABYTE GA-P67A-UD4-B3
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...


Thanks in advance.

I voted for the ASRock Extreme4, but if you're not going to do SLI/CF I'd go with the cheaper Pro3 version. My Pro3 board overclocks my 2500K to 4.8GHz with no problems, and has been rock-solid stable with 12GB of RAM (one 2x4GB kit and one 2x2GB kit of G.Skill Ripjaws X 1600 CL9).

Thanks.

I guess with the SLI/CrossFire, even though I don't plan to I'll probably want it there just as an option.
