I'm on a fairly tight budget and have a max of 100 dollars to spend on the motherboard. Which of these would be the best decision for potential upgradability and just quality of build in general?

I've heard Asus makes the best motherboards, but this one doesn't have very many reviews and is rated 4 eggs while the ASrock I list has significantly more reviews, the vast majority of which all seem to be satisfied customers.

I would go for the Asus based on my knowledge of their quality compared to Asrock.

Okay thank you! Out of curiosity, what's the difference between the B75 chipset and the Z75?
And any other thoughts?

You mean Z77, not Z75.

The B75 chipset is a pared down version of the Z77 chipset. It supports Ivy Bridge, but is limited in many ways. You can read all about it at Intel.com if you're interested. Just go to the chipsets section of the website.

But that ASrock motherboard says its a Z75 chipset. Is that also a pared down version of Z77? And okay, I'll check out an article or something.
