I was wondering if some1 could shed a little light to help me out because i have been grating my brain away for a few days now trying to decide which motherboard to go with in order to make my full order for the new system im building for gaming.
Here is some information on the parts on my list buying all my stuff from overclockers.
Case - Cooler Master HAF X Gaming Tower
CPU - Intel Core i7-2600K 3.40GHz
Intel Liquid Cooling Solution CPU Cooler
Seagate Barracuda 7200RPM 1TB SATA 6Gb/s 64MB Cache
Motherboards hit a plateu after around 250$ when it comes to how much performance you can suck out of them. As long as they have all the slots and features you want, and are from the 3 major brands out there, you're not going to be disappointed. (except if you try contacting customer support from gigabyte -shivers-)
Also, the 2600k is a complete waste of 100 monies for gamers. Save yourself the money and get a 2500k.
One last thing; intel liquid cooling solution... Not recommended. Unless you're using a real full loop system with a pump, reservoir, and radiator, you won't find any worthwhile advantage over big air.
