Im planning on building a new Haswell based CPU, but i got confused about picking a low-cost (around $100) mobo, so please help me out :D 

Which one is better on your opinion? ASUS B85M-G or MSI B85M G43?

This is their official site :
http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/B85MG/
http://www.msi.com/product/mb/B85M-G43.html#/?div=Basic

This is the computer i want to build (without mobo):

- Intel Core i5 4570 3.2Ghz Cache 6MB [Box] Socket LGA 1150
- Seagate 1TB SATA3
- Corsair DDR3 Vengeance Blue PC12800 8GB (2X4GB) - CML8GX3M2A1600C9B LP
- Digital Alliance Geforce GTX 650 OC 1024MB DDR5
- Infinity IN-01 WITHOUT PSU
- Corsair VS Series 450W CP-9020049EU
- Samsung DVDRW 22X SATA

I will be happy with a mobo that have SATA 3, USB 3, and DDR 3 RAM dual channel for my Corsair.

Or do you have other good Haswel mobo for around $100?

Thanks for your help :D

Why not the Gigabyte board I posted in your other thread? As for the 2 boards above, Asus one looks very low-end, and Asus is famous for making the worst low-end stuffs. MSI one has more features and a better layout, but kinda buggy according to threads on Tom's hardware forum.

For a nice low cost mobo under a hundred, how bout the Rock H77 Pro4/MVP $60, with the difference could upgrade to the 4670K, this mobo supports OCing via the multiplier that most lower end mobos done >
