Which motherboard for my PC build

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/3Hlqd

This is a build someone made for me but I want to purchase a different motherboard. Could someone suggest multiple motherboards that would fit into my case and fit my build as a whole. I already ordered everything except the motherboard. And I would prefer it to fit a budget of 100 dollars.

  1. there are several motherboards within that budget that have the same chipset. in my opinion the gigabyte is a nice choice. you get 6 SATA 6 GB/s ports, 2 PCI-e slots, and RAM capable up to 2000 mhz. if you go any higher in price on a mobo you're really paying for the same thing. the only other one i saw was an ASrock extreme 4 mobo with 5 SATA 6GB/s and 1 e-SATA port. then it had 3 PCI-e slots so for an extra 20 bucks thats whats better on that one.
  2. What CPU did you get? What CPU LGA Socket? We need that information to suggest a motherboard. Do you want AMD or INTEL?

    So this board is fine with this build? I was just skeptical about it cause of a lot of mixed reviews on it on newegg
  4. Here are seven motherboards. I would go with this Asus.

    ASUS M5A97 R2.0 AM3+ AMD 970 + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS $89

    So the asu would fit my build and case? Sorry for the dumb questions and not being specific this is my first build and I am fairly new to this stuff and want to make sure everything fits well so I'm not wasting money.

    That is a mid tower ATX Tower case. That means any ATX motherboard will fit fine.
