Gents, Im back to tinkering with the ole' PC again. :bounce: 
Its only a few months old, but Im looking to change out some components. Well, I hope you guys will help me decide that.
My current MoBo (GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3) was a last resort purchase, as the MoBo I wanted wasn't in stock.
My GPU's arent PCIe 3.0, but Ill soon be replacing those anyway.
Here's my question:
Which MoBo should I get that will 1) be somewhat future proof (for at least 1 year)
2) supports 2 PCIe 30.0x16 GPU's
3) still works with my current CPU

This was an option I was considering:

you are setting your sights way to high, unless you can justify spending $340 [the real price of that motherboard] over something around $150 then i sea absolutely no reason to get a motherboard of that price.

when it comes down to it, price reflects a few things. #1 how many pcie slots it has #2 extreme over clocking features that most people cannot even utilize without extensive knowledge #3 ports #4 accessories like pci brackets for more ports

unless you can find something thatll justify the price of that board than i would go with something in the $150 range like this

your CPU doesnt have pcie 3.0 support anyway, just FYI, you will have to get an ivy bridge processor to use pcie 3.0
