Hello everyone I posted a lot of topics before,
but i found out newegg doesn't ship to countries outside the US, so I have to start all over again.
hehe
So yea what is the best motherboard under $125 USD, and that has a Socket 1155 for an i5 2500k :) 
I might want to OC' the CPU a little bit, and tweak the GTX 670 to 1125Mhz.

I was looking at this before:
MSI MB-Z68A: http://www.amznly.com/ix
Asus P8H67-M: http://www.amznly.com/iy

Full pc specs:

(Asus or MSI PE OC) GTX 670
Intel Core i5 2500k
CM Storm Scout SGC-2000
XFX Pro 650W
Kingston HyperX 3K 90GB
Kingston HyperX 8GB 1600Mhz Ram
Corsair H55 silent edition

Tell me your opinion about my future build, but please don't post any pcpartpicker builds! :) 
And any recommendations for the GTX 670 brand? (MSI or Asus)
Sorry if my english is not that good, i'm from Holland and 12 years old :heink: 

thanks everybody for reading!

This is a good board for 10$ more than your budget. I can vouch for it as I have the same board.

This one is a good one for your budget.

As far as which card is better would be for what you're wanting to do with it, like you said your wanting to OC so in that case the ASUS would be better. Their cooling imo is one of the best and if not it is the best.

Would there be any FPS differences?
I think i'll go with the Asrock one, just to be safe :p

The FPS difference between the 2 cards no. There will be when you OC, as you would be able to OC farther with the ASUS one then MSI. Yeah the ASRock board is awesome, I've had it for about 3 months and its worked wonders for me so far. And the UEFI BIOS is a nice addition to it as well.
