I'm looking to build a sandy bridge and I have no idea what a good motherboard is. I want to upgrade to a ivy bridge when it come out. So what would be a good one for both? Ty

Thanks for the replies. Is there are reason why those are better then the other boards? I don't mind spending at least 250$ if that would be me something better.

Ivy Bridge and PCI-e ver 3.0 support.
What extra features would you want in a motherboard?

Not really sure about what features I'd want. I was just curious to know what makes it better then the others.

Like comparing it to motherboards that don't support Ivy Bridge and are PCIe 2.0?

Before anyone can give you an honest answer, do you want a board that will run dual cards or a single card ?

I plan on having two cards. I'll prolly spend at least 250 for the video cards. Was thinking the msi560ti's or something like that. I'll get at least a 120 SSD hopefully i can get it on sale.

Never sli or xfire to begin a build- by one More Powerful card to start you off and add in a second when you need it (it leaves your options open for an upgrade)
