Please specify the use of your rig. Do you plan to use multiple GPUs (Xfire/SLI)? Is this an HTPC? How many SATA3 and/or USB3 ports do you require?

MSI P67A-G43 $125. All the modern conveniences, with the option to allow you to xfire later at 8x/8x.

Did you pick out a case or is this going into an old one?

I'm going to use the PC for gaming. I only plan to use a single gpu(still I would like to have the option to use mutliple gpus in the future). 4 SATA3, at least 6 USB2.0 and at least 2 USB3.0 ports
