Hello Everyone,
I am looking for a motherboard that is not necessarily for gaming but I will be using it for gaming purposes. I need a good sugestion for a motherboard that is under $200($199.99 is fine). Below will be my setup:

Case: Rosewill Blackhawk Mid Tower - already have!
CPU: Intel i7-3770k - I got an amazing deal on this($75), that is why I am using it instead of i5-3570k.
Motherboard- ???
Memory - G.Skill Sniper Series 8GB(2x4GB) 1866MHz
Video Card - Sapphire 7970 - haven't decided if I am going with GHz Edition
SSD - Samsung 840 Series 120GB SSD
HDD - WD 1TB 7500RPM HDD - already have!
PSU - Corsair HX750
CPU Cooler - Corsair H80i Liquid CPU Cooler - already have!
OS - Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
Optical Drive - Transferring from current computer(sata connected)

If you see anything that you would suggest changing about this build please let me know and I will look into it. This is my first build, so be KIND!

MSI tend to have more stable and all around motherboards then ASRock but its really preferance at this point.
