So i have been trying to find a new motherboard for the right price i am looking for a atx motherboard not a micro and atleast sli compatible. I have been searching on newegg and amazon and everytime i see a good priced motherboard it always has negative reviews :pfff:  so i need your help for a motherboard. My price range is 0 to $120.

You have to be carefull with the feedback on products because people will give bad feedback for not getting a rebate or because the UPS driver was late or the box was damaged. These are all added in and totaled to be counted for that product. So you have to go through thefeed back and weed out the bad and unusefull feedback and see what the feedback really is.
Asus boards have notoriously bad feedback and yet they are very good and popular , I just bought an Asus Rampage IV Extreme and the feedback was not good about 50% five stars and the rest devided between the other stars and yet the board is great an has no problems.

GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-D3H LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
$129.99 and a $15 rebate makes the final price $114.99.

Here are a few boards that you can look at and consider. Having two video cards for SLI and being $120 and under will be tough because that requirement makes the board more expensive.
