Can anybody recommend me a motherboard for a gaming pc that's between £100-£200 (Around $150-$300 I think). I want to overclock my CPU (i7 2600k) and in the future I plan to do daily video editing for youtube with sony vegas.

Possible candidates I've seen so far are the :

Asus P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3 Motherboard £155 -

Asus Maximus IV Extreme R3.0 P67 £200 -
http://www.ebuyer.com/261056-asus-maximus-iv-extreme-r3...

Asus MAXIMUS IV GENE-Z/GEN3 Motherboard £140 -

Asus sabertooth Z77 £170 -

Could anybody either tell me what the best motherboard out of these (or any others on the market) for overclocking and video editing is please, thanks.

forget gaming boards . . get a workstation for more features that you will likely use like the Z68-V PRO or:
Asus P8Z77-V PRO £149.72 Inc VAT
if you also like wifi and more USB3 ports.

Asus P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3 Motherboard,

I've got the same and pretty much looking good, and from what I've heard it's a decent motherboard to have and cheap.
