Opinions on best gaming mATX board?

Ive been working on planning out a gaming system to fit in a smaller form factor case using an i5-2500K, and I've been trying to pick out the best Mobo for it. Right now I like the looks of the GIGABYTE GA-Z68MX-UD2H-B3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard. Pricing wise I generally stick to newegg or amazon.

The pros are:

Z68 (P67 is alright too, just no H67s)
USB 3.0 front and back
SATA III
4 RAM slots
SLI Ready (Not really a requirement for me though)
eSATA (Again not required, but nice)

The only real con I see is no UEFI

It's priced at $159 which is about the limit I was hoping to stick to. I don't need a more expensive board that has a lot of features I won't use, but I'd like opinions on anything in the mATX form factor. I DON'T want opinions on why I should switch to a full ATX board, thank you anyways.

  1. To add on to this, it would be interesting to hear if anyone has had problems (with heat ect..) with two cards SLId using this board :)
