Hi, I need help finding an appropriate motherboard.

Processor: core i7 870
Memory: 4 GB dual
Graphics card: Radeon HD5850

I recently decided to change from HD5770, based on what I've been reading on these forums (excellent forum!). I'll be using a 1920x1080 monitor, and the 5850 has gone down in price to $180 on newegg. Now, this is still more expensive than the 5770, so I was hoping for a good motherboard choice.

I never plan on crossfiring/SLI. Also, it would be nice to get a reputable brand mobo. I just want the essentials, 3.0 USB, but still able to fully utilize what I have.

As a second side question: based on my system, should I get a 1333 or 1600 memory (also will affect mobo?)

Thanks!

The Asus P7P55D-E is a popular one along with Gigabyte's GA-P55-UD3R

And for RAM, it would depend on the price difference, and whether you're overclocking.
