Good replacement for this Motherboard

Was going to purchase the following Motherboard to build my new computer, but it appears that it is now out of stock.

Any suggestions for replacement to this one, hoping for same performance and price range.

  1. Probably, but I would go with this heatsink instead: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103065

    I don't see much difference except in price. What cpu will you be using?
  2. i2500k

    Also, would it be compatible with a gtx 680?
  3. The 680 should work with your asus board, but now you need to check your power specs against the minimum requirement for this card. What is your make and model number?
  4. The EVO is a better fan, designed for the 2011 without any adapters, but the one I recommended is fine for the 2500K.
  5. Will probably be buying this card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130768

    As long as the fan is decent and allows me to overclock the cpu a bit if needed, it should be fine.
    Also hoping for a quick and clean install since this will be my first compute build.

    I've already ordered the following things.

    Would I have any issues finding updates for the BIOS if I wish to boot ubuntu?

    Didn't mean to turn this into a huge thread, just not fully well informed about everything.
  6. I have used an older version of ubuntu and I've had no issues with any of the three boards I've tried it with. Asus has a special bios flash program for usb flash drives, but I've never tried it. With such a new board, I wouldn't flash the bios if it posts with your cpu; bios updates are for major problems, such as updating a cpu that won't post.

    Just to confirm, the CORSAIR Professional Series Gold AX650 650W will suffice for the 680 card?
  8. The motherboard you want to replace appears to be back in stock.

    So, should I go with my first choice or the asus?

    How much are you willing to spend on your motherboard?
  11. If it's between those 2, I really don't mind.
    If $10-30 more, still fine.

    Here's a good reference for you to look at. Try to aim for pcie x16 3.0 support.
