This will be my first pc build.
I only have my case right now.....thermaltake level 10 gt black

I've been reading and reading and reading about which mobo to go with.
and it seems everyone and every forum i've looked at everyone has a different opinion.

I plan on using this pc for 98% gaming and maybe a movie every once in a while.

I know i am wanting to run Dual gtx 570 in sli

i'm not too worried about overclocking right now cause i don't know much about it.

Any input from the community would be greatly appreciated!!!

Thanks

Welcome back to Tom's Forum! :) 

Unless the 'plan' is 3 or better 4-WAY GTX 580's (X79), and it seems to be SLI GTX 570 then either the P67 or Z68.

Assuming a Sandy Bridge 'K' then one of these:

Z68:
ASUS P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD5 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
EATX ; verify fit with case:
EVGA Z68 FTW 160-SB-E689-KR - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
(doodad) EVGA Z68 FTW 160-SB-E689-K2 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

P67:
ASUS P8P67 WS REVOLUTION - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
