I can spend upto 200$ on mobo. I have shortlisted a few:- asus p8h67-m pro, asus p8z68-m pro, biostar tz68k+.
Well i have heard that z68 chipset will support the upcoming ivy bridge cpus making my config upgradable later. So i hace preference for biostar mobo as it costs less than 200$. So tell me whether this is a good mobo or not and whether biostar is a good manufacturer or not? Moreover i wont be overclocking my cpu as know nothing about o.c. If you have better mobos in this price range please suggest those too.
I use amd biostar boards; don't know if a bios update will be required for ivy bridge. That's where asus excels; they offer more bios support for upgrading the cpu. If you have a couple of days, I would write biostar and see if they will provide any bios updates for ivy bridge. And I would overclock the 2500k or get a cheaper model.
