Trying to figure out what board would be better for my 1st build. Going to be pairing the board with an i5-4670K cpu and a GTX760 gpu. I plan on going SLI once the gpu drops in price alittle, and im not 100% if i'll be over clocking or not. What do you guys think is a better board? or if you have any other board suggestings in the $150-$200 price range.

My Build so far:
NZXT Phantom 410
Corsair H80i
Corsair TX850M
Intel Core i5-4670K
EVGA GeForce GTX760
Vengeance 8 GB 1600mHz

Well, with the promo code on Newegg, the ASUS is only $10 more expensive than the ASRock, so, I would go with the ASUS in this case.

Both are good boards and I am using the ASUS board in this build and like it. Nothing wrong with a ASrock board either. You will do well with either one.

Definitely the Asus, and at the same price point, might look at their ROG mobo, the Hero, it's what I decided on ;)
