Hey Brendon, welcome to the forums.
Could you go ahead and post your complete specs? While you're here, we might as well make sure they are all gonna work together optimally :D 

Anyway, that ASRock Extreme4 is a fine board. But if you have a high budget system, something outrageously awesome like the ASRock Fatal1ty might be in order :p 

So yeah, please post your complete system specs, we can go over them and make sure they will all work. Nothing worse than buying the parts to find out you need a smaller Mobo or something.

ASRock P67 EXTREME4 will match up nicely with the PC P&C Silencer 910W PSU, and the HAF X case.
Plenty of power in reserve for a future 2nd GTX 570 SLI setup.

^ right. There are really 3 options when it comes to p67 mobo's. The Asus P97PRO, ASRock Extreme4, and the Gigabyte P67-ud3. They are all on the $170 price bracket, and all perform good. Any of them is an excellent choice.

However, if you are willing to spend a bit more, the ASRock Fatal1ty pro is a super sweet board, probably not needed though.

Looks like you have a monster rig! I'm glad we could help you out :)
