What motherboard to buy for my Build?

Hi :hello: , I was needed some help to decide what motherboard to buy for my build. I've already bought the i7-2600K as my CPU so I'm bounded to the LGA1155 socket. The 3 motherboards that I can't decide between are:

-ASUS Sabertooth P67 B3 TUF Edition Motherboard-

-ASUS Maximus IV Gene-Z ROG Motherboard-

-ASUS Maximus IV Extreme-Z ROG Motherboard-

The 2nd and 3rd are about the same but i need to why and which is better? So which is the best for me to buy. Also let me know if i can change my RAM to make the computer any better. :wahoo: One last thing I dont want to spend alot on the motherboard, no more then $300-400.

  1. Hello and welcome to the forums :)
    The best choice between those mobos is the Maximums IV Extreme-Z;however,if you don't plan to OC much,then you may want to consider cheaper Z68 options as well such as P8Z68 Deluxe
  2. Maziar Thanks for your response! :hello: Actually I do wanna build a computer that is overclockable. I just want to leave myself an option, if needed.
