Help choosing a MB for i5-2500K budget gaming rig Tags: Motherboards Gaming Intel i5 Last response: November 24, 2011 3:26 AM in Motherboards Share TimCat November 23, 2011 8:23:22 PM 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.
