    Budget is important.

    The top mb manufacturers are ASUS, Gigabyte, and MSI. Gigabyte makesgood budget boards.
  4. The MSI mpower might be a good choice if you needed to put in 3 graphics cards, but otherwise, the ASRock Z77 Extreme4 should have everything you need at a lower price than either of those:

  5. jnkweaver, i guess on a motherboard nothing above 200$

    and MauveCloud, idk about ASRock, a friend of mine had 2 ASRock mobos and they just stopped working i dont know how but i just know that he didnt do anything to them to mess up. so thats why im looking towards MSI or ASUS
  6. and the z77 mpower has ocgenie which is helpful for me because i dont really know how to overclock

    I would say go for it. The z77 mpower is a good board. Make sure you buy a good power supply for all of this. Stick With Seasonic, Corsair, or Antec.
