If you buy an H67 mobo, then you could switch to the i5-2500 as you won't be able to overclock the CPU and you'll save a bit. You could even buy an i5-2400 and save a bit more.

Where did you hear that Gigabyte have issues with their BIOS? No motherboard is perfect; if you want the best and most reliable Asus motherboard (or any other brand), then you can't expect it to be really inexpensive. In addition to the motherboards suggested by nikorr, you could also consider the ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3.

is there any asus cheapest h67 mobo for 90$ that supports ddr3 1600mhz instead of 1333mhz and usb3..i want to know whether really 1600mhz ram is very useful for extracting compressed files ,video conversion and gaming because 4x2gb 1333mhz ram is 11$ cheaper than 4x2 gb 1600mhz ram

No, but why would 1600 MHz memory support be important for a motherboard that can't be overclocked? You could still use 1600 MHz memory, but it will run at 1333 MHz which is fine. Why would you want an H67 mATX motherboard when you'll only save $20 and lose the additional features offered by a Z68 motherboard?

Edit: In the title, you wrote "(atx)" which implies that you don't want a mATX motherboard.

sorry for that..as im tight on budget i would like to invest money on processor and gpu..which is core i5 2320 and gtx 560ti so im going to a cheaper usb 3 compatible mobo..1600mhz matters me because i do a lot of extraction and compression work so 1600mhz is very useful as they speed up the work..

What type of extraction and compression work? What application(s) are you using? Sorry, but 1333 MHz is the maximum memory speed supported by the H67 chipset. Since you're buying a video card, you don't need the processor graphics (the H67 and the Z68 chipsets support it), but you won't save by buying a P67 motherboard. You want 1333 MHz memory? Then buy the ASUS P8Z68-V LX if you absolutely want an Asus motherboard or buy the slightly less expensive and very good ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 which is more future proof.
