Or how about this one GIGABYTE GA-X58A-UD3R LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard? I like the price and it has great reviews
Any X58 Mobo would be the wrong socket, (1366) For the 2500K CPU it must be a Socket 1155.
I think i will go with the motherboard mentioned earlier the Intel P67. What do you think?
Yes. A P67 Mobo gives you the most options for upgrading and the best bang for your bucks.
You will notice that sites have the Biostar and MSI boards available. They are still there because discerning buyers want a better board.
Your first choice for features is the Asus P8P67 Pro.
Your second choice for value. Worth high quality and features is the Asrock P67 Extreme 4. about $150. Almost as good as the Asus P8P67 pro @ $190.
Third choice. Asus P8P67. Not able to get a price.

One issue that I am having is both my optical drives are IDE not sata so does that mean I have to get a new optical drive or is there another option?

Are your optical drives installed and working in your PC?
What Mobo did your buy?
When you get the time, it would be very helpful to update your profile with your current OS and system specs. Anyone who likes then build could than copy it.
