Hi Guys! i want to build my gaming office budget rig. im getting an i3 2100, and only needs 1GB video card and i need a pci 1 slot. im just confused on what mobo to choose. im eyeing on the asus p8h61-m le usb3, Is this a great choice? my budget is $100 for a mobo. Any other suggestions for a cheaper but great in performance and durability?

For it's low price, the P8H61-M LE is good. For $100 you could get a BIOSTAR TZ68A+ http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... or an ASUS P8H61-M if you require an micro ATX motherboard http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168....

Most motherboards will 10 years or more. I see no reason why a Biostar motherboard would be less reliable than an Asus. I built a system based on a Biostar motherboard and it's been running fine for several years. The color shouldn't be a selection criteria.

Make sure that you can install an ATX motherboard before buying one. Your original selection was a mATX motherboard, but you didn't say if size or cost was the criteria.
