I'm looking for a good mobo for general use and gaming. I will not be over-clocking. I haven't picked out the cpu yet but I have decided it will be either an Ivy or Haswell i5. I'm looking for Micro-ATX or Mini-ITX as I don't have a lot of space for a large computer case. Right now, I'm leaning towards Gigabyte because of the dual bios. Please give a reason why it's what I should get.

Depending one which motherboard is suggested, I'll get the CPU that matches.

I would like to keep under $130, but I will go over if it's necessary.

Do you have a budget? Pick HW or IB first, because they use different sockets.

I guess what I meant was depending on what motherboard I get, I'll get the cpu that matches. I don't know if I should go with the latest generation or the previous one. The differences between i5-4670K and i5-3570K is small enough I really wouldn't notice the difference.

You are probably correct as to gaming power. But it's always nice to go with the latest tech if possible. If you have a budget you are sticking to, let me know. I'll help you pick one out.

There really isn't a budget but I'd like to keep it at $130 or less. If it's necessary that I go above, I will. I've been looking at Gigabyte and ASRock, they look promising.
