Default Help me choose a motherboard for 2500K cpu for photography processing

Hi,

I would like to build a pc with the Intel i5 2500K and I have the below motherboard options; can you please help me choose the best one ?

P8P67 PRO (REV 3.1)
AsRock Z68 Pro 3
AsRock P67 Extreme 4
Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD4-B3

regarding overclocking if I will overclock just to gain some performance over the stock setting and to better handle the photos processing.

thanks
ron

To add on to this, do you think the Asus P8P67-M Pro would be just as suitable using SLI assuming its at a lower price (few problems with heat ect..)?

The Asus P8P67-M Pro is a SLI capable motherboard.

I know, all I'm wondering is if there would be a problem using SLI since the cards would be closer together. Sorry to derail the thread
