New mother board for tri-sli

Hello. I am looking for a new mother board for tri sli GTX 570s. I have been looking around and found some pretty good ones that would fit three within my price range ($100-200) but the 3rd slot seems to be really close to the mother board on most of them, thus blocking all of the connections at the bottom of the mobo. If someone could recommend me a few good choices that would be great. And also it would be nice if they looked somewhat nice but not a big deal. Thanks in advance.

  1. Biggest thing is to know what platform (CPU socket) you are building!
  2. Oh haha. Can't believe I for got that! I have an i5 2500k. And also, hoping for the board to be either P67, Z68, or Z77.
  3. Just a quick quote from my original post "price range ($100-200)
  4. And thank you Chester. I will take a look into those. Any thoughts on how the EVGA z68 one is x16/x8/x4 ? Would that affect performance in any way?

    No problem if you are content with dual card SLI! If you want tri SLI you will have to spend more on the motherboard!

  10. What about this one that Chester recommended http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813188097 Seems good to me. Although, not sure about x16/x8/x4. What would that do to performance? Would I even be able to do tri-sli with that board?
  11. Or this one. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157269R I like this one, especially seeing as my past few motherboards have been ASRock and I have had no problems, other than one bargain one I got was DOA, but got it RMA'd no problems.

    Its a good one. But with open boxes u may not get all of the accessories,

    so think about that.

  14. Alright thank you everyone for the help. I don't have the money quite yet so I have time to think.
