That's quite the ambitious choice for a motherboard. I would suggest something closer to 130 dollars, which would give you probably all the things you want from it. The lga 1155 slot type is good, and of course, you'll want a sandybridge i5 2500k, and 2x4GB 1600mhz DDR3 ram. Also, look for the antec 300 case. That's a very popular one. Upgrades more expensive than that won't be as cost-effective.
