Which motherboard would work best for i5-4570

Hi.
----Not really relevant-----
So I am in a bit of a pickle. One of my friends asked me if I could help him build a new PC, one better then his lousy laptop (his words). I gladly told him I help him. Now I have the right parts for his needs and budget.
He says that the most impotent thing is that it's capable of playing games on high graphics settings. What he means is that he wants to play games like League of Legends, The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim, Counter-Strike Global Offensive and State of Decay on settings high enough to average 60fps , so not having min. 144fps in Crysis 3 on ultimate settings. So I thought a i5-4570 and a 760/770/R9 280 would be a great choice.

----Question----
I need help picking a mobo that's great for gaming with an Intel i5-4570 (I won't be overclocking anything)
The size has to be either Mini-ITX or Micro-ATX or ATX.
Price... as long as it's under 180$ (1000DKK. Prices in Denmark are a bit higher then in USA)

I looked at the MSI Z87M-G43 and thought it might be a good choice. But please, give me some recommendations


Thank you in advance

    The. Z 87 isn't needed at all since you have a locked CPU.

    Any from this list will be perfect for you.

  2. This would be my pick.

    Its decent priced. and its a series 9 chip set which will give you more compatibility with future upgrades. For example if he wants to boost his speed in a few years you can plug in a SATA Express drive.
  3. ok nevermind.
