How do you guys feel about BIOSTAR for a gaming Mobo

I'm trying to build a budget conscious gaming rig for upcoming games (BF3, Tribes:Ascend, as well as to boost performance in current titles such as Starcraft 2)

I'm looking for the best $100 "ish" mobo to pair up with the i5 2500k (would love to keep the combined price for these at $320 or below. UEFI BIOS would be a huge plus if I can find it at this price point.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813138319 - BIOSTAR, reputable brand? I don't think this one has UEFI BIOS.

Seems as though MSI and ASUS are the main players in motheboards.

Thanks for any input!

  1. It all depends on the target OC. IMO minimums:
    OC 4.0GHz~4.4GHz 8 Phase
    OC 4.5GHz~5.0GHz 12 Phase

    See both spreadsheets -> http://www.overclock.net/intel-motherboards/916189-complete-official-intel-p67-z68-motherboard.html

    The ASRock Extreme4 is a good <4.5GHz MOBO, and the ASUS "PRO" & Gigabyte UD5 or higher for 4.5GHz+ OC.
