Best Motherboard For Me...?

I Am In The Process Of Building A Computer For Myself & I Plan On Using The i5 2500k. My Question Is What Would Be The Best Motherboard Out Today That Will Support The i5 2500K And My Needs As Well?

I'll Be Using The Thermaltake Level 10GT Chassis ( )
I'd Like To Keep It An ATX Motherboard
I Don't Plan On Using Dual, Tri, Or Quad Graphics, But It Would Be Nice To Have As An Option In The Future As I Would Be Using This Computer For Gaming.
I Don't Plan On Doing Much Overclocking, If Any At All.
Not A Lot Of Video Encoding Will Be Done Either.
USB 3.0 Is A Must Seeing As How The Case Has 2 Ports In The Front Of It.
Memory Will Be About 8GB...
Sata 6Gb/s Would Be Lovely As Well.
I'd Also Like To Keep It, If Possible, Less Than $200. $150ish Is Ideal.

Umm, I Can't Really Think About Anything Else To Give You Guys, But If There Is Anything Else You'd Like To Know, Ask Away!

I Appreciate The Help, Thank You In Advance To Everyone Posting On This Forum For Me.

  1. GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-D3H - $159.00 at Landmark $134.99 at Newegg
  2. Well the absolute best one is the P8Z77-V Deluxe for 450...But I guess you don't need that:)

    For your needs the ASRock Extreme4 is a decent board, even though I'm not really akin to ASRock myself, it has 2-way SLI/CF, decent overclocking capabilities, 4 USB 3.0, and 4 SATA 6GB/S for SSD speed.

    Good luck!
