hello all, i am build a gaming pc with a $500 USD budget and i got everything except the mobo. here's my list http://pcpartpicker.com/p/QBgTNG
so i'm debating between the asus m5a97 r2.0 (non LE version), the asus m5a99x evo and pro version AND the asus m5a78l.
Now i would like to add that: 1. i can live without crossfire or sli. 2. i want to be able to overclock and make sure the mobo does a great job at handling all that. 3. in the future when i upgrade, i might switch to intels i5 4690k or something with similar performance but not sure unless i can't get anything worth upgrading for in AMD's cpu.
taking all this into consideration, which mobo would you pick/recommend ?
