I need a motherboard for a gaming PC I am building using a i5 3570, like the title says. I don't need a lot of features, but one I do want is decent 5.1 surround sound from a digital audio output. I do not intend to overclock. I also don't want a motherboard with a noisy chipset fan, so passive cooling would be nice. I don't intend to use any kind of SLI, I will only have one video card. One board I found which looks good is this one:

Is there any other boards I should be aware of? Reliability is a high priority for me as well, I do not want to working out bugs in hardware that was released too soon.
