I am planning on building a pc, so what should I buy? I would like to oc the i5 2500k and crossfire 7850 in the future. So the requirements are pcie 3.0. And a price from 100 to 150 dollars.

Thanks for the suggestion, however, I need a motherboard that is sold by amazon, since I am planning on international shipping

then that board i just linked would work if you can accept pcie 2.0. The cards you are getting/have are backwards compatable with 2.0.

do you guys think that 7850 would be enough for the next year?

Yes. Based on the benchmarks on http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/radeon-hd-7870-revi..., it looks to me to perform roughly the same as a GTX 570 give or take a few fps depending on the game. So long as you aren't running eyefinity or very high resolutions, i don't see a reason why this card wouldn't be able to pull off ultra at good fps on any game on the market.
