Reliable Mother board for my 7970 and a 4th gen CPU?

I have a mini mother board atm, and i know it's having problems. My main focus though is upgrading the motherboard and upgrading to a 4th gen intel CPU. Was wondering what your thoughts are on a capable but not extremely expensive Mother board is. One that would work with my 7970 and the new CPU. Don't have the money, nor would i want to upgrade my GPU anyway but i figured if i had money left over from my tax return i should jump on upgrading.

currently have an 2nd gen i5 2400. Asus mini board

    well if i get the i7 cpu id say close to 200 or 200, nothing more than that. Since after i buy / pay off stuff that leaves me with about 500 for CPU and mobo.
  3. anyways here is link for a good mobo

    You didn't mention about any RAM modules that you are currently using
    Asus Maximus VI Hero
    Asus Z87-PRO
    Gigabyte GA-Z87X-OC
    check the compatibility with these... your 7970 will support them, only thing remains is the RAM modules..

    I guess MAXIMUS VI HERO is good for back generation RAMs.
    Let me know if there's anything else.

    & for your new i7
