Trying to choose a motherboard to fit with my future upgrade plans can be kinda overwhelming... there are so many different options and I'm still a bit new at PC building so I don't entirely understand what every single specification means. This PC is purely for gaming and nothing else (demanding games like Far Cry 3 and BF3). But this is what I'm looking for in a MB:

- LGA1155 socket / Ivy Bridge i5 compatible
- PCI-E 3.0x16 support
- AMD Crossfire (only 2 cards, no interest in ever doing 3 or 4)
- SATA 3 (6GB/s)

That's what I know I want. I don't care as much whether max ram capacity is 16gb or 32gb, 2 slots or 4 slots. I also want the fastest performance from my SSD, which is why I'm looking for SATA III (seems to mostly be standard anymore) but I don't know if there are any other factors of a MB that determine how fast an SSD performs.

I would like to say price isn't an issue, but it kinda is. But still, I'm not one to settle for less than the best, so I will dish out the extra dough if it's truly worth it. So don't worry about price, just point me to what's best for these features I'm looking for.

Currently I'm looking at this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... , let me know if there is anything better
