Best mother board for i7 2600k

Hi Friends,

Please suggest me the best motherboard among the below list. I would like to have a singe pci-e slot with overclockable option for all cpu/ram/gpu.

I am interested in Sabertooth. But it has got 2 pci-e slots and I know I will never use one. So, please suggest me the best performance motherboard, which I can buy.

Note: I am planning to add GSkill sniper or Corsair Vengence ram and Asus HD 6950 (EAH6950).

Intel DP67DE - 16x, 8.Ch.S,L, USB 3, FW
Gigabyte P67A-UD4-B3 -16x (2),8.Ch.S,L, USB 3
Gigabyte P67A-UD7-B3 - 16x (3), 8.Ch.S,L, USB 3, FW

    If you are going to be looking for an Intel® board for performance then you want to be looking at the Intel Desktop board DP67BG or the Intel Desktop board DZ68BC. The Gigabyte P67A-UD7-B3 and Asus P8P67 Deluxe are the most feature rich of the boards but I think of the boards that are listed I would go with the Asus P8P67 Pro. Just so you know you don't have to use the second PCI-E 16x slot or you can even put a 1x card in it if you need to without a problem.
