For gaming you would want to go with an Intel processor anyway. Just get an i5 and one of the motherboards you listed.

There is not a lot of difference between a mainstream motherboard and a "renowned" or "enthusiast" motherboard.
Yes, if you pay a bunch, you can eke out a few more MHZ from a great motherboard. But is it really necessary?

If you want to build a gaming monster, Intel is currently the only way to go.
In the current tom's article, best gaming cpu's for the money, there are NO winning AMC chips at any price point.

Even with Intel, any Z77 based motherboard will be able to OC a "K" chip to levels that will drive any graphics configuration well.
No real need for a top priced motherboard.

Go to newegg.
Under motherboards, select matx or itx format, and the northbridge that best supports your cpu chip.
You will find a bunch.
