Hello, I'm building a new computer but still on a budget. I'm buying an I7 930 from Microcenter for $200 and I need to get a motherboard and ram to go with it. I'm into light gaming but very hardcore video and photo editing. I don't need sli because I'm really only going to use one video card. Onboard raid would be ideal. My budget for a motherboard is from $100 - $200.

My recommendation would be either the ASRock X58 Extreme or ASRock X58 Extreme3. These are both good boards at great prices under $200.
As for RAM, I recommend going with the G.SKILL PI Series 6GB (2x3GB) DDR3 1600.
