I'm am building my first computer, and I will be using it primarily for gaming. It is going to have a Core i5 sandy in it, and I need help picking out a mobo. What I need is:
LGA 1155
P67 Chipset
2 way Crossfire support
32gb RAM
At least 1x SATA 6gb/s
Enough room for my HIS 6950 2gb card, (and another in crossfire, a little way down the road).

My budget is $180 at most. Thanks in advance.

You have a lot of options. I would check out some of these:

ASRock P67 EXTREME4 (B3) - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... $159.99

MSI P67A-GD65 (B3) - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... $179.99 (+ $7.87 shipping, so it does go over $180, but their is a $20 rebate, so $159.99) (Also, newegg doesn't list the crossfire, but it is capable)

ASUS P8P67 (REV 3.0) - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... $154.99

GIGABYTE GA-P67X-UD3-B3 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... $154.99

Those are my quick picks. There are more to choose from, just check out the newegg link below and browse for a bit.

Thank you! I am going to go with the ASRock P67 EXTREME4 because it has very good reviews, and it is $160.
Thanks again for your help!
