im looking for a good motherboard for under 130$

-supports intel 2500k (1155)
-good for a beginner at CPU overclocking
-ddr3

(two Pci-e x16 slots would be nice, but not required.

Any ideas?

I was originally going to go with the ASRock Fatal1ty Performance board but newegg is out :(

That's exactly the one I'm going to get.

After doing some research on NewEgg, I found out that's the motherboard with the most 5 egg scores and least 1 egg scores out of all the Z68 motherboards in $100-200 price range.

Only one that comes close is Asus P8Z68-V PRO which is about $70 more expensive.

Asus makes a board Z68 that is about $114 after rebate on new egg that would fit the bill.

also if you look in details its x8/x8 in cf. Figured if i ever did crossfire the 7870 the x8 wouldnt be much of a bottleneck
