MOBO for i5 2500k?

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).

    ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard $114.99
  2. Been looking at that board and it seems quite good :)
