Trouble choosing Motherboard

I'm building my first gaming computer, and I think I might have everything figured out except for the motherboard. My budget is $750 after taxes and shipping. Here's what I have:

Case: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811133094

PSU: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817339036

HDD: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136767

GFX Card: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150512

Memory: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820220597

CPU: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103727

I might also throw in a cheap DVD drive, although I already have one.

Now, for all of those above things excluding the case, I've gotten a bit of advice from the community here, but the motherboard I haven't gotten much help with. I've been told that I shouldn't get a micro motherboard, and that AM3+ is something I should look for. On top of that, I do like the idea of UEFI BIOS as I've never done anything with the BIOS of anything, and I'd like to get to know how to do so. So, with that in mind, this is the board that I've been looking at:

How's that?

    That sir is an excellent choice :)

    Asus makes great solid boards, and that one will do everything you need it to do.

    From the rest of the components you selected there would be no point in going with a more expensive board. And that one looks to be in your budget.

    I think you will be very happy with that board.
