Motherboard for i5-3570k

OK so I've been doing a lot of reading about motherboards and their different features and stuff. could anyone recommend a good motherboard for the i5-3570k. I've been playing with virtualization" lately (for school stuff) and my current computer does not have "hardware virtualization". This new system will need to support that feature. Micro center is still having a sell where you buy the CPU and get 50 dollars off the motherboard.

micro center catalog:

one more question, is 3d acceleration a feature in the motherboard or the video card? I'm pretty sure its the video card but I'm not sure.

thanks in advance!

yea still looking, my budget hmm about 200, but now i need to find a board that supports virtualization. I was looking through the motherboards on sale at micro center. the asus boards don't seem to have that feature. I was reading that I have to find in the specs that it says "VT-X" and that means the board supports virtualization.

ok wow i was reading that the best way to know if the motherboard supports virtualization is to download/read the user manual and read it. :o  that will take forever! the CPU supports it but according to what i read:

"Virtualization Technology requires a computer system with a processor, chipset, BIOS, enabling software and/or operating system, device drivers and applications designed for this feature"

i have found many post that say "no only the CPU needs to support it" and then a lot of people say "no that's not true both the CPU and motherboard need to support it." but if the CPU supports it and not the motherboard how will the motherboard know how to use a feature that it does not have? I don't get it

It will be fine, but why not get the ASUS SABERTOOTH Z77?

Thats a killer mobo : ) With great discount. The Z77 all do support the virtualization.
