Hi all, I was just wondering what sort of mobo I could purchase that would handle high range gaming? [I wouldn't really want to spend more than $100 - less cost is better] Thanks

~Needs to have PCI Express 16 slot

Need some more info:
what cpu? Does it need to handle more than one GPU? Are you overclocking?

I am intending to purchase an i5 3570K (hopefully to OC), and one Nvidia GeForce GTX 670

Either board looks good, I was going for trouble free rather than oc. Should mentioned my thinking, my bad.

Okay, with that budget, I recommend the following:
ASRock Z77 Pro4 - $94.99 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

It overclocks quite well (compared to similarly priced boards) and is fairly reliable.

Edit:
The asus one that royalcrown linked is a b75 board. b75 can't overclock (except through bclk which isn't much). It would be a waste of your 3570k
See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LGA_1155 for info regarding chipsets.


Thank you for this very important info =)
