Hello, I'm in a process of building a budget gaming PC. I already selected most of the hardware, when I realized I had no information about the motherboards. I would really appreciate if someone knowledgeable could suggest me a decent motherboard that could fit all these components.

Graphics card: Gigabyte AMD/ATI Radeon R7 260X 1GB GDDR5 PCIE GV-R726XOC-1GD
Processor: Intel® Core™ i3-3250 3.5GHz 3M LGA1155
RAM: 2 sticks of Crucial 4GB DDR3 PC3-12800 CL11 1600mhz
HDD: Western Digital CAVIAR Blue 1TB SATA 7200RPM 64MB
DVD drive: Samsung DVDRW 24X SATA Black

I am planning to add an additional graphics card for crossfire later, so 2 slots for graphics cards are required. I am not going to overclock anything. Also, suggestions for cooling, power unit, or replacing parts with the more powerful ones that are at the same price range would be appreciated. Thank you in advance :)
