I am looking to build a new gaming system with the following specs:
i7 2600K (will be overclocked)
Asus Gtx 570 (Sli later, overclocking is plausible)
750 Watt HCG Antec PSU
DF85 Antec Case
Antec Kuhler 620
4x4 Gb Ram Corsair Vengeance 1600Mhz
6Gbps Sata SSD Corsair Red Force? (i think)
2TB WD 7200Rpm HDD (Sata)
I prefer it to be either black, red, or both. Because this build is themed red&black
Brands don't really matter, Gigabyte, Foxconn, Asus, .....
So LGA1155, and chipset is all the same for me.... You guys know better than me which chipset to choose
y'know... the compatibility should take priority over colors when choosing computer components. since you chose a core i7 2600k cpu, and you're going to sli with another gtx 570, you'll need an atx motherboard with p67 or z68 chipset that supports at least x8+x8 sli.
foxconn's own brand motherboards are iffy, same for jetway or colorful (the brand, not the actual colors)... may be some of the biostar as well.
now i could post some newegg links .... but your max. budget for a motherboard, prefered website for purchase etc.
