So I will be building a budget gaming desktop for my fiancee. So far this is it:

Case: NZXT LEXA S LEXS
GPU: EVGA GTX 750ti
CPU: FX6300
PSU: EVGA 600 B 80 Plus Bronze
RAM: G. Skill Ripjaws X 8GB (2 x 4)
Cooler: CM Hyper 212 EVO

My concern is a budget motherboard. I currently have my sights on this one as it has good reviews. I'm not planning on overclocking my fiancee's rig nor am I X-firing it.

Is this a decent board? If not, are there any others recommended in the same price range?
