I imagine this question is asked a lot, but I was wondering what the best under 90$ motherboard their is for gaming. I've heard good things about msi but I don't know for sure which one to get.

CPU: i7-3770k
RAM:G.Skill Ripjaws Series 8GB DDR3-1600
GPU:MSI GeForce GTX 680 2GB

Sorry if not everything is there, this is my first time. Any questions, please ask.

90$ hardly gets you a decent board for gaming that supports your CPU well. The only candidate found at this price range is MSI B75A-G43 gaming ( basically a Z77A-G43 gaming with chipset swapped ). It has Killer LAN controller like more expensive boards in the series but you won't be able to OC your 3770k with its B75 chipset.

Do you think I should go with an MSI Z77A-G43 gaming for just a couple extra dollars, or should I go with a different motherboard if I willing to bring my budget up a bit?

Z77A-G43 is quite good for gaming at this price point. It can also push your 3770k to 4.5ghz for better gaming performance with ease ( requires a decent cooler like hyper 212 evo, of course ).
