Hello everyone! I am one of the many many people out there that has a unique situation and cannot for life of me find the answer i need, so i come here to ask you guys! I need a Motherboard for this i7-3770K i am buying and i have one i found that seems really good BUT i wanna be damn sure im not missing out on something. If you guys can recommend me a motherboard (Either made by Asus or MSI ect) that would suit me then Thanks friends because you've gotten me somewhere hahahah!

I plan on:

-Overclocking atleast to the turbo output (3.9GHz)
-I need a case mounted USB socket (dont ask why there isnt that many out there)
-i want to be able to put atleast 16GB of RAM in it at some point
-I have a Carbide series 500R mid tower case from Corsair, fitted with a Gigabyte 7950, and a Semi modular Corsair ATX 650W PSU (details are there in case you need space specifications)
-I want features (Like the next guy) but i dont want the price the skyrocket...i basically need all this with a 125$ budget ( I realllly cant go any higher in the budget) Im pretty dead set of the i7 though, but any insight will help, Thanks guys!

Wait so the Asus one doesnt support Crossfire either?, i have AMD not Nvidia but if theres no SLI theres no Xfire right? It doesnt matter to me anyways, i prefer a single card which higher clock and VRAM as opposed to using 2 or 3 lesser cards. That ASUS one was the one i was talking about when i said i have one already in mind hahahaha its good for the price thats for sure. I thank you for you reply! Sorry if i didnt notice it right of the bat!

ASUS P8Z77-M Paired with the i7-3770K (OC'd to tleast the turbo settings maybe more hopefully) wouldnt cause any complications? If the board is too cheap for it to work i can work around it by changing the CPU but im into video animations, rendering, and using programs equivelent to Creation Kit and G.E.C.K. for example, so i really want to i7

EDIT: Apparently you are able to OC fairly well with this board so this might be the one for me, However i want to make sure Theres no others im missing? Thanks in advance guys!
