I'm building a new computer and I don't know which motherboard to get. I would like to keep the motherboards price under $120-$130 as well as have a Z77 chipset and PCI-Express 3x16 if possible.


CPU: i5-3570K
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8GB
PSU: Not yet decided.

Note: I will be paying graphically intensive games like Battlefield 3 and Planetside 2.

Thank you,

^ Asus's high end boards are good, but their low-end boards are... average. OP, you'd be better off with an AsRock Extreme 4 or a Gigabyte z77x-ud3h.

That being said, the 650ti won't max out Battlefield 3... you know that, right?
(And planetside 2 isn't graphically intense - it's just buggy and badly coded.)

^ I agree the Gigabyte z77x-ud3h would be better but not in his budget.

Would a MSI Z77A-G45 Socket 1155 Intel Z77 be good?
