Hey, im getting a computer around 21-27th of April and was wonder wether i should wait for IB or go with SB. Will there be much noticible difference?

FROM AUSTRALIA - Website - www.pccasegear.com

I need a motherboard that will fit an Intel i5 2500k/ or ivy bridge equivalent, (Fits both).

The motherboard needs to be under $150 AUD and fit SLI gtx560ti's, im only going with one to start off with but ill probably upgrade in future to SLI.

Needs to be on www.pccasegear.com and under $150, and fit into a CoolerMaster Storm Enforcer.

I was thinking this : Gigabyte GA-Z77MX-D3H

Will that be alright for all my parts, fit a SB/ or IB, and be good for gaming?

Thanks!

Does M-Atx affect its performance in any way? or could you select a motherboard thats normal ATX for under $150 on www.pccasegear.com? Also, will the board i said, fit a Ib and the SB or just the SB?

m-atx has limited slots and is meant for lan parties.z68 will also support IB and pci e 3.under $150,this is my suggestion-
