    Hey

    What motherboard do you recommend for LGA 1155(i7-2600k) and Corsair Vengeance?
    Now I have ASRock p67 PRO 3 B3 but I want to change.

    Mobo must have:
    - USB 3.0 and pin connector inside.
    - Minimum three SATA III connector
    - I don't need two or more PCI-E so maybe one PCI-E.
    - UEFI

    Hmm maybe Asus? Or Gigabyte?

    My Motherboard is fine.
    There is a pro version which does just as well but gives you an extra thrid party SATA 3 controller and Firewire.
    The GEN 3 allows you to upgrade to Ivy Bridge if deciding to do so in th future.

    Latest BIOS maybe an issue since it appears it is catered for either Win 7/8 or Win XP/Vista.
    I just didn't bother to update.

    AsRock has their own version which I think is a Z68 Extreme 3 or 4.
    I think it is cheaper but just as reliable.

    I'm from Poland and this Asus Maximus V cost $223. Non "open box".

    Maybe 2 PCI-E x16 slots is good for me. Maybe I buy in the future second card.

    Can anyone recommend me mobo with 2 PCI-E 3.0 x16?
    And I have PSU 650W.

    You're not going to find a board without a PLX chip on skt1155 that can do two slots of full 16 lanes and those boards can get expensive. If 8 lanes is fine, most motherboards already have that and you're not going to see a whole lot of difference between 8 and 16. I'm not sure what kind of options you have where you live though.

    it has actually been proven that running through a PLX chip is sometimes slower then running native 2 x8

    I see. I must increase my budget.
    If I would take ASRock Z77 Extreme4 or Asus Maximus V my OCZ 650W would suffice?
