So i planning on building a gaming/video rendering computer and I would like to put in a Xeon E3 1230V3. I was wondering if this mother board would work? and if not could someone recommend me a mother board for about 100-150$ thats compatible with the 1230V3. Thanks in advance.

Get a B85 chipset motherboard. The price premium that Z87 chipset motherboards aren't justified in this case because you can't overclock a Xeon.

Could you recommend me a good B85 chipset for about 100 bucks? i plan on keeping this system for atleast 4 years and need a good quality motherboard that will last. Preferably MSI or Gigabyte. Would the motherboard i listed above work with a Xeon E3 1230v3 tho?
