Mostly for gaming so what important is: good performance, nice audio, pci 3, sata III, usb 3,easily updateable BIOS, 2-way crossfire, quality solid board for long lasting.
not very important: OC, wifi, lots of ports
VGA - Asus 7970 Direct CU II
CPU - i5 3570k
RAM- Kingston HyperX Predator 2400mhz or Corsair Vengeance 1600mhz (2x4GB)
SSD - OCZ vertex4 128GB
HDD - Seagate 1TB 7200rpm 64mb chache
PSU - OCZ ModXStream Pro 600W
