Can't really say because the currency in my country is very different so I guess mid-high budget?

Asus Rampage III Extreme or for a little less Rampage III Formula.

Gigabyte G1.Assassin or if you have OC in mind Gigabyte GA-X58A-OC.

All of them between 250€ - 350€

the g.1 assassin should be awesome, but the sabertooth looks like it can bite you a big one too
