What is your budget like?

Are there any particular features you want?

Will you be adding more to the board in the future? (e.g. adding more RAM)

I will be using this for primarily gaming I need a Sata 3.0 for my SSD. I would like to OC my graphics card. There is two USB outs on my case. as well as a Sata out (not sure what you could do with that. I don't really have a budget but no features really seem that enticing. I would like to use this setup for 4-5 years I don't think that I will need more then 8 GB of ram for games in that time frame.

This should suit you well:

ASRock Z68 PRO3 - - $119.99

The ASRock only has 1 PCIe x16 slot. If you want two PCIe x16 slots, I was going to recommend a Biostar board, but I guess after 2 RMA's you are done with them for a while. So if you want two slots then I would recommend the following:

GIGABYTE GA-Z68P-DS3 - - $109.99

Well that's my two cents, good luck.
