whats your opinion on this mobo?
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

is it good? im trying to get the most bang for my buck right now!, i don't want to do a serious OC but maybe like up to 3.8 or 4 GHz. so is this a good mobo or would you recommend something else?

personally i stay away from microATX boards; generally less features and harder to work on being smaller.
ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 $124.99

was the board to get until everyone fell in love with the Z77 chipset. still a great board.

ok, got it. can't find fault with what you picked then unless you are looking to SLI/Xfire later . .but the added heat would be an issue unless you had good air flow in the case.

i would consider this if i knew i would go multi cards on the graphics:
ASRock Z77 Extreme4-M $134.99
this would be if i needed cheap and good:
ASRock Z77 Pro4-M $109.99

the one you picked is the middle of the road choice i would think about.
