as stated above which mobo should i chose for an i5 2400.
no sli (will be using gtx 460 or gtx 560 on it)
it should have usb 3 and sata III support.
computer will be usd for gaming only.
try to keep it as cheap as possible with out sacrificing too much on quality/reliability.
my budget is around $80. i'd luv to buy a 60-70$ mobo if it fulfills my requirements.

anything i am missing?

You're just a tad low on the price range there.

I could only find one mainboard fitting your requirements at $80 or below:
ASRock H61M/U3S3 Micro-ATX

Another one that fits, but is $85:
ASRock H61ICAFE full-ATX

The rest that qualify are $90 and up. There are a few $60-70 boards, but they don't have USB3 and SATA3.

the price difference between the two is nothing so i might pick any of them.
is it better to have a full ATX board rather than M-ATX? any drawback of either of the two?.
would the full ATX fit into my thermaltake v3 case?
r both these boards good and reliable?
also link the 90$ board u were talking about.

Micro-ATX boards tend to have less fancy features than full-ATX boards simply because of lack of space. Also, some people prefer one size or the other -- my ham-hands can't handle the cramped conditions imposed by a Micro-ATX board, for example.

And yes, full ATX boards will fit in that case.

That one you linked is even smaller than Micro-ATX -- the ITX standard is made for extremely small PCs and your case isn't meant for something that small.

I guess my recommendation would be the first one I linked in my first reply -- the ASRock H61M/U3S3 Micro-ATX board.
