I want to overclock my I5 750. I want to spend around 100-130$, Maybe Put 2 cards in crossfire in the future also .Which board you suggest me ?
Does overclocking from 2.66 to 3.4 will make a noticeable difference in gaming and other tasks?
I can run all my games maxout, except crysis 2, I get 30ish fps with the dx11 and high resolution patch, Thats why Im looking to overclock, to maxout the very demanding games....Do you think its worth it ?

I've built 3 machines with i5-750 processors, Xigmatek coolers, and cheap Gigabyte motherboards. Two of them easily went to 3.9GHz, the third went to 3.8GHz. They have all been running for almost 2 years with no problems.
I've built 4 other computers with the cheap Gigabyte motherboards and core2duo processors, all of them are still running with no problems.
