Need help for LGA 1150 motherboard, will Optiplex 9020 mobo fit?

Hello everyone, I'm considering building a cheap PC with I3-4160, 8GB 1333Hz Kingston RAM and a GTX 750ti. I wonder If there is any cheap motherboard that can fit my build well, I mean I don't want any thing big, but also not too cheap because I don't want any trouble with it. I don't know much about motherboards, but I do see many cheap Optiplex 9020 motherboard on Ebay that goes with LGA 1150, DDR3 RAM. Can anyone suggest if I should get the Optiplex motherboard, or any recommendation?

  1. The problem with the Optiplex motherboard, even if it would fit, is that Dell uses proprietary connectors (front panel and often USB, for example) that won't work with non-Dell cases.

    What is your mobo budget?

    Lots of options, for example:

    I'm looking for something under 50$, or even below 40$, but if spending a couple few more bucks to get a nice mobo then I don't mind. And I also don't mind getting a pre-owned one either, as long as it works fine.

    But just a small question, what happen If I don't use a case but I build a rack with airflow myself, will the optiplex at least work?
