as the title says, need a mobo for an i5 2500k, around the £100mark, dont plan on sli or crossfire any time soon but might overclock at somepoint in the future. Quite new to overclocking so a simple bios would be usefull. would be nice for it to be reasonably futureproof but i understand the restrictions of a low budget.

More about : build decided mobo

As long as you go name brand you cant go wrong. Asus, EVGA, Gigabite would be my choice. Just look through newegg and search for the features you want in the price range you have.

ASUS P8Z68-V LX or P8Z77-V LX
ASRock Z68 Extreme 3 or Z77 Pro4 or Z77 Extreme 4

Asus all the way.
I'll never stock a Asrock board in my store.

Their quality has improved. Check the reviews.

I'll agree some companies do get better, but once you get that bad taste in your mouth it's hard to go back for more.

Like I said, check the reviews. That ASRock Z68 Extreme 3 has really made a name out for itself.
