Best Motherboard for me.

OK so I am building my first computer and have narrowed down most of the parts that I am planning on using. I would appriciate people input of which mother board I should buy. I would like to spend no more than $150 on the board but would love to find something closer to $100.

My build so far:
Intel i5 3570k 3.4GHz
8gb of corsair vengeance ram 1600
Western Digital 1tb caviar black
Gigabyte GeForce gtx 660
Antec three hundred two
Corsair CX600

I also plan on overclocking this system so any motherboard that makes overclocking easier would be good. Also in the future I may want to run two 660s through sli but if it drives the cost of the board up too much I won't wast the money.

    Either one of these boards should work fine with a single video card; the first one has sli support, but limited spacing may be an issue.
  2. Any recommendations on a good b75 mobo?
  3. Also I looked up the xeon and it has a lower clock speed than the 3570k(3.3 GHz for xeon vs 3.4 GHz for i5 3570k)

    Will these board support overclocking on the i5 3750k?

    yes. Both are z77 chipset boards. They are about $30 more than the B75 boards, which don't support overclocking.
