Will be putting together this build in a few months I would like some advice on motherboard recommendations.
I will NOT be adding another vid card in SLI.
I do want and LGA 1155 Z77 chip set with at least 1 pcie 3.0 x16 vid card slot.
I most likely will not be overclocking but having the option in case I decide to try and learn how to do it might be nice to have for the future but not a requirement.
max cost I can spend is $150.00 USA or less would be nice also.
I have never built my own computer before so noob friendly bios would be nice also.
so I am looking at 3 options all about same price with same good and bad reviews. Is it just a matter of personal preference or are there some real pros and cons I can look at somewhere? They all seem to have what I need so maybe it just doesn't matter and Ill just pick the one that goes on sale first.
