my first pc build is a core i3 2120. I need help finding a good reliable mobo with hdmi in the 50 to 100 price range.

MSI H67MA-E35 (B3) LGA 1155 Intel H67 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

ASRock H61M/U3S3 LGA 1155 Intel H61 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

The ASRock is award winning, but PCI slots are a personal turnoff for me, plus the MSI is H67, which provides on board RAID. I'm quite sure someone will come here with a sub-100 z68 ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... , reliability iffy) , which is fine too.

This thread belongs in the Motherboards & Memory forum.

The boards above me are the best options.

I don't recommend H model MB's because they can't overclock. P and Z models will o/c. I realize a I3-2120 doesn't o/c but Z bboards have other nice things on them and allow you to upgrade PU's later.

ASRock Z68M/USB3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard $92.55 shipped http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Yet another edit. The P67 MB didn't have HDMI port.
