Building a new budget gaming rig and need some assistance picking the motherboard.

Have a $150 gift card to Walmart that is burning a hole in my wallet so I am trying to find a motherboard from their website to purchase.

So far I am looking at the Asus P8P67 Deluxe, Asus P8Z68-V or the MSI Z68MA-ED55 B3.

Not sure if the Deluxe is worth the $40 over the V, or if the V is worth $30 over the MSI.

Keep in mind I want something good without spending more than necessary.

I want to overclock and my long term goal is to do SLI and RAID0 with 6gb SATA.

Been out of the game for a while (last rig I built was over 3 years ago) so any help is appreciated.

They sell components online. The only ones I really saw to choose from are the ones I listed above.
