advice me a mobo for < i3 2100 + hd 5770 >.

Will there be any marginally benefit in gaming while going for h67 or p67,instead of h61?

if not i will go for ga-h61m-d2-b3.

if and only if there is any marginally benefit, plz suggest the best on budget of around 90$.

note:
gaming is my only preference.
usb3 n sata 3 are last priorities as far budget is concerned.
no OC
no future upgrades of cpu.
if i go for ga-h61m-d2-b3, i will get a pcie usb3/sata3 card after a yr when the features will be required.

The ASRock Z68 PRO3 GEN3 should fit you perfectly.

It has several overclocking presets built-in bios, so you don't have to mess with settings by yourself. You just let it do the trick, and it pushes out max of your K series processor. My i5-2500k with this motherboard was easilly overclocked to 4790mhz, which I find very respectable. The only drawback is high level off standby hissing, noticeable from audio output of this motherboard.
