Hi, I am confused with mixed answers and reviews about motherboards for the fx-6300 and such, so I would like to know-

What is the best motherboard under $100 (Canadian price) for a FX-6300 and GTX 650 Ti Boost, would like to OC a little in the future and upgrade the GPU and CPU as I experience the computer.

I have heard goods and bad about the following boards, quick answers are appreciated! Thanks!

ASUS M5A97 R2.0
ASROCK Extreme3
MSI 970A-G43

I know there are a few more, but these are the ones I could remember. If you know any other ones for $100 or less for better performance please tell me

Asus should be the first choice, the Rock would be second

I am also using CanadaComputers.com, and I will not mind if the good ones require a mail-in rebate
Also would like to know how mail-in rebates work

(Some i found that look good but with rebate)

Need to decide on a CPU and let us know - the first mobos were AMD - now you are throwing out Intel 1150 and 1155 mobos - tell us a CPU and we can steer you to a good mobo - a budget # for the mobo would help also

Bumping is not allowed on the forums..... if you tell us what CPU you plan to use, then I or someone else could help - what you've put up so far doesn't make any sense, it's all over the place Need a CPU that you plan to use and a budget - otherwise you are simply wasting peoples time

Well I have a FX-6300, like I stated, and I said in a reply before that I did not know that those boards were all Intel, and the M5A97 doesn't seem to have a USB 3.0 on the top.

Also I need a board that has USB 3.0 because my case has it

We don't know that's what you want when you throw out all these different mobos - for the 6300 the M5A97 R2 has an onboard USB3 header and 3 USB2 headers also has 2 external on the back panel for USB3

can see the specs at the Egg

Ok, thanks. Could you also happen to explain why the reviewer is saying 1/5 stars?

They are talking about the previous mobo they had, a EVO and saying they had problems with it, but from the sounds of it, I would guess they had a faulty hard drive - the reviewer says that this mobo is fine
