Cheaper than anywhere else and i don't know for how long.
Doing new build and i'm getting the parts for it over the next month of so. What does the -M of this model mean? There are like 4 versions of this mobo from what i can see.

It will be going with an Intel i5 2500k, EVGA 570 and 8gb Ripjaw Ram.

Depend Do you want/need the Mobo, can you get another mobo that can suit your needs better.

I'll mainly be gaming and recording gameplay. I don't really want to spend more than 100 on the mobo.
this is the ram i thinking of getting - http://www.amazon.co.uk/G-Skill-Ripjaws-Sandybridge-Platforms-PC12800/dp/B004HZG4ZO/ref=wl_it_dp_o?ie=UTF8&coliid=IW2GPVTB0B6MW&colid=3PV2M522NYCEU

I'll most likely OC the 2500k to 4.5GHz

Look at some video review or review see if it can overclock well or had any known issue.

Might want to see if some who is better at the Intel 1155 socket enters the thread.

From a quick Google search I'd say it not a bad mobo.

He is usually quick good at unboxing http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z9lleCSPF4Y

O sorry, the other Mobo is good I do like MSI as a manufacture (not that Asus is bad at all).

I like Ebuyer but these are just as good if not, better.

The "-M" in the name is because it's a MicoATX form factor.
