I'm in the middle of a build right now and just bought a miniITX case for it so I was wondering what motherboard should I get for this? I'm looking to spend around $100 on the motherboard and I'm more than likely getting an i7 or i5 chip. What would you guys suggest and why?

This board has all the ports you'll need, plus a pci-e slot for video card add ons. If you add a separate card, get a low profile 7750 (if you can find one) for around $100. You want a card that doesn't generate too much heat, which is hard to move in such a small case. You'll need at least 350w power supply for the separate video card. If your case has a proprietary power supply, you may have trouble finding a decent one. If that's the case, stick with the Intel 4000 onboard video.
