Will buy the components for my new build soon :D 

what motherboard should I get for the i5 2500k?

-will not upgrade to Ivy bridge and the 4th gen will have a other kind of socket so it doesn't NEED to be z77

-budget at 120€/$

-will most likely be running crossfire HD 7950 in the future. (doesn't need pci-e 3 because Sandy doesn't support it, right?)

-will be overclocking around 4,5Ghz

- internal usb 3 header would be a plus ;) 

Cheers! :)

Even if you won't be upgrading to an Ivy CPU, this has an internal USB 3.0 header and fits right into your price range (here in the US anyway).
