I almost got the money for this build, but i need someone to help me find a motherboard(i suck at boards).

I want to OC my CPU to 4.5Ghz and i also want to OC my RAM.

My uses will be:

Competitive Gaming(with fraps recording):
CoD4
SC2
WoW
quake
counter strike

Use of the Black Magic intensity shuttle capture card recording fully uncompressed.

Great Video editing for video game montages and anime music videos/AMV's.

Whats the budget for the motherboard?

I have a Asus P8P67-M Pro and its great. I cant speak for other brands but Gigabyte and MSI are good too. A motherboard with price of 150 or above should be enough for your needs.

Biostar TP67B+ LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Your board is fine if you don't plan on adding another graphics card in the future. If you do then go with the p67x-ud3 since that allows for SLI. I'd also recommend getting a beefier graphics card. The 460 768MB is a great budget card but depending on your resolution I'd up it to the 560 ti or 570.

I would really go for the 560 if I had the other components picked out.

You guys sure i need a different graphics card? Ill be using a 1680x1050 monitor and only want a minimum of 30fps in SC2 and a minimum of 60fps in the other games i mentioned.

Edit: i plan on getting these hard drives, i just use the western digital to round up the price.

Considering you didn't mention your resolution size until now, I assumed 1920x1080.

If your resolution is only 1680x1050 then 460 should be fine especially if you are only wanting 30fps.
