Default Which motherboard/processor

I'm planning on building a new rig shortly. I hope to get the i7 2600k stop I was wondering which motherboard you would recommend that isn't to much. Also will intel processors work well with a pair of 6950s? How about just one 6950?

Thanks for your help!

Default Re: Which motherboard/processor

The cpu will work with a pair of 6970's and/or a 6950.

Motherboard, depends on your budget.

$60 range: Newegg.com - BIOSTAR H61MU3 LGA 1155 Intel H61 HDMI USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

$80 range: Newegg.com - ASUS P8H61-M (REV 3.0) LGA 1155 Intel H61 HDMI Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

$100 range: Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-P67A-D3-B3 LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

$150 range: Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-Z68X-UD4-B3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

I would assume anything higher would be a ton of money. I personally wouldn't spend more than $100.

Go drool over this:

$360 range: Newegg.com - ASUS Maximus IV Extreme-Z LGA 1155 Intel Z68 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Extended ATX Intel Motherboard
