Hey guys!
I'm building a rig over the span of 2-3 months (last part I will buy will be a Kepler GPU). I bought the CM Storm Trooper case and RAM combo that follow a red/black theme. Normally I don't care about color but I want to try this time. I need help looking for a mobo that follows the black/red theme, great OC ability, and Gen3. I was thinking sub-$200 but I only have 2 options:

ASUS Maximus IV Gene-Z/GEN3

I did see some black/red mobo's at the 250 range, but are they worth the extra dough?

Let me know what you guys think! I really appreciate your help and time!

Mostly for headshots and micro/macro...but I do like to it off to the other nerd co-workers (I work in the technology dept at the Subway World HQ)..heck even have a facebook album that would make my gf jealous lol.
I was thinkin the same thing...only thing is the micro-ATX form factor seems limiting. I wanted to add a Xonar sound card for the audiophile in me and putting that board in such a huge case makes it look funny.

I SOUND LIKE A GIRL lol...jeebus. I just want to make this thing look like it's mating.

Whats your opinion on this card:
