I am planning on using the ASUS B85 Plus mobo for my gaming build, and I know that all of the parts are compatible, I am just wondering if it's a good board for gaming or if I should consider another one. (P.S. I'm working on a $100-150 budget for mobos)

It won't let you OC your CPU and it doesn't pack a whole lot of features. And for $150 you can find much much better.

I have an i7-4771 so I don't think I'll need to OC. Also, I don't plan on using too many mobo features anyways.

If you don't need a lot of features, and since you're not going to overclock, this is a very competent board for it's price: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/asrock-motherboard-b85mpro...

I plan on possibly running 2 GPU's in SLI later on, so I don't want an mATX board.
