The Asus board would be my choice just for brand quality followed by the MSI board. Biostar I might avoid.

All of them look the same in terms of spec except for the fact that the Asus board has onboard USB 3.0 ports.. If all are similarly priced (a 20$ price difference at max), I would recommend the Asus..

The asus was the more costly one , msi was 2nd , and biostar was 3rd.

The were around 20$ different on my list ..
Well , what does USB 3.0 do ? is that for keyboard/mice and thumbdrive stuff ? If its really important and future proof , then i would go with that.

Your video card is definitely not the latest but nevertheless, it'll enable you to play all those games just fine.. As for USB 3.0, its a major advancement from USB 2.0 with a huge increase in transfer speeds making copying stuff from your pc to pen drives, external storage media etc. very fast.. All your devices though have to be USB 3.0 compliant to enjoy those transfer speeds.. USB 3.0 is also backwards compatible with USB 2.0 devices..
