Motherboard: I have no idea honestly, they all just seem like a hit or miss. If someone could recommend one, that would be great. I looked at one of the ASRock Z77s but I read a review on amazon that said if I had a bottom mounted power supply, I would need to drill through my video card. :S

I have already purchased my video card, ram and CPU as I got them on sale. My case, HDD, PSU are all pretty much set to buy, perhaps an SSD in the future.

I just do not know what to do for my MOBO. Not really looking for anything in particular, just one that will decently overclock.

Thanks for suggestions.
