Motherboard needed for i5-2500k.
Hey guys, first post here, hopefully some of you can shed light.
I'm currently piecing together a new build, and the only things I lack are mother board and graphics card. Here is what I currently have:
Seasonic x660 GOLD
G.Skill RIPJAW 8GB 1600
Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200 RPM/32MB CACHE
Corsair 500R Black
I am looking for a motherboard for my set up. I have read a little about z68 boards and their ability to set up some caching with a small (60-80GB) SSD. That seems pretty nice and probably something I'll look into in the future. I have never overclocked before, but I would like to experiment with it some down the road. Also, I may run SLI in the future.
I am very ignorant when it comes to motherboards, so I'm looking for some advice.
I don't really have a budget, but I don't necessarily want the most expensive unless it is warranted. I would like the best price / performance I can get I suppose.
Hopefully you guys can help. Thanks.

The Asus P8Z68-V Pro will suit your needs perfectly. I'd definitely look into it. They are excellent motherboards.
The Gigabyte Z68X-UD4 is another solid option.JOIN THE BENCHING TEAM!
