I'm upgrading to an i5 3570k and wondering what mobo I should get. It's for my gaming pc and i'm more than likely going to get a second hd6870 and crossfire them so I need 2 PCi-express slots. I need two ram slots. I want to be able to overclock my cpu aswell at some point, nothing major. maybe just a small increase. Nothing too expensive aswell, I have a budget of about €100/$130

thanks in advance .

ASRock Extreme 4 Z77 seems to fit the bill. It's around $135 USD and has two PCI-E 16x slots for your Crossfire needs :)

To get a good crossfire you might have to spend a little more. Don't know what country you're in so here are a few you should be able to find one of them.

asrock z77 extreme4 http://www.amazon.fr/dp/B007KTY4A6/?tag=pcp05-21

asus p9z77-v lk http://www.amazon.de/dp/B007TIYX3Q/?tag=pcp05-21

gigabyte z77x-ud3h http://www.amazon.fr/Gigabyte-GAZ77XU3H-Carte-Intel-Soc...

****EDIT***
The msi is probably the best choice for your budget but it will still be a little more than you wanted to spend but maybe you can found it cheaper msi z77a-g45 http://www.amazon.de/dp/B007JRGVUA/?tag=pcp05-21

^^ what about MSI? MSI is certainly better than gigabyte and asrock. i got a z77a GD55 for 140$ you should be able to get a G45 for about 110$. it's great for overclocking.

MSI motherboards are also a great option, I've never had any complaints when I've used them.

any Z77 board from any of the above mentioned brands would be great. these boards aren't all that different from each other except one or two features

Not any z77 will do. The op said he wanted to crossfire so he should get a mobo with pci-e 3.0 2(x8/x8) if he gets a cheap one the second card will only be x4
