Budget MOBO for HTPC

I'm looking for a good MOBO for my budget HTPC. I wont be doing any gaming or overclocking. All i need is HDMI and atleast 2 USB 3.0. I am looking to spend $75 and under. Suggestions? I plan to get either i3 2125, i3 2100, i3 2105 CPU.

  2. Might as well go for one of the newer chipsets. Go for any of the B75 or H77 boards from Asus, Gigabyte, or ASRock. I don't have any personal experience with Biostar, but the board you linked looks nice and has positive customer feedback.

    If your HTPC case uses the 2-pin header for the power LED, I highly recommend you get a Gigabyte board... they don't flash the power LED when in S3 standby. That's my one gripe against Asus.
