Hey everyone!
I was wondering what the best motherboard would be for the GTX 670 in SLI, I want to use the Intel Core i7-3930K LGA 2011. So the motherboard has to be able to use that CPU, It would be nice to have the motherboard to have USB 3.0, and if at all possible under $250. Sorry if this is in the wrong thread because I had to choose the motherboard or the Graphics Cards. So Sorry if it is in the wrong thread!

More info: Is it possible to even use to GTX 670's in SLI? I went on the geforce website and all it shows its the GTX 590's and the motherboards used for it. So yeah. :)

do you mean SLI (as in two cards) or QUAD SLI (or four cards). if it's just two cards, any LGA2011 board can do it (and they pretty much all have USB3.0)

if it's four cards, none of the boards will do it. especially not under air cooling. this isn't simply an issue of the board, but also of insufficient cooling for the cards and too much overhead for processing the quadSLI... it usually don't run faster than triple SLI

Yeah I meant two cards, I new it was just SLI, but the geforce website kept on saying it was Quad and it had two. Even though Quad means 4, I was confused. Thank you! I am gonna use the ASRock X79 Extreme3 for it. I think it will be a very nice PC.

well, currently this board would be your best bet for SLI. you can step down to an extreme 4 if you want to save a few bucks

also, if you're anywhere close to a microcenter, they have very nice bundle deals for CPU plus mobo. much cheaper than newegg or amazon

Sounds good! Really appreciate it! Never heard of MicroCenter, (I'm from Canada) but I'm going to the States to get my computer parts because it's cheaper. I will definitely check them out!

Yeah, microcenter's a hardware specialist store in the states. if there's one along where you're going, it's worth stopping buy. their other components can be a bit pricier than newegg or amazon, but they sell their CPUs $20 or so cheaper than newegg and give you something like a $50 off the mobo if you buy them together. great deals :)
