Best Motherboard for my i5 3570k Ivy bridge

Hi I was wondering what would be the best mobo for my current build budget is $150-250 AUS


CPU - i5 3570k
GPU- 5870 (May be upgraded to a gtx 570 or 7950)
Case - Thermaltake v6 Black edition
HD - 1TD Samsung SATA + WD6000HLTX

Thanks, I'm not sure if this isn't enough info please tell me and I'll update it.

P.S I would like my Mobo to have SLI/Crossfire for future upgrades.

  1. Any Z77 motherboards will be good. Something like this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131837
    You can get a cheaper one from another brand or with less features but all of them will allow you to overclock that 3570k and crossfire/sli
  2. ASRock Z77 Extreme4

    Its a very nice board. Has SLI/Crossfire support, overclocks well & should fit your budget very well.

    I just build PC with this mobo and I like the BIOS, its looks like this.

    Works as expected @ 4.4GHz



    For the mobo, I would recommend -> ... Latest Z77...
    That is a good mobo choice for the CPU. It has good power design for OC.

    U can definitely use this one ->

    ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX
