Hello,

I am building my first rig and am looking for help in choosing a Motherboard. I have about $130 to spend on my MOBO and would like it to be a full ATX however I have already purchased a A8-5600K Black Box FM2 socket APU. Any suggestions on what is a good mobo to pick up?

Here are two. The second is a bit more than your budget, but I am always willing to pay a little for for ASUS boards. I've never had one fail ever. Motherboards all depend on what you want as features. These are both jam packed FM2 boards.

Wow that Asus motherboard is way overpriced for FM2. I'd go with the Asrock. Alternately I'd suggest this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

As I said, I'm always willing to pay a little more for ASUS. I've used them for YEARs and never failed yet. I've had and seen all other brands fail at least once. ASROCK does bring a good product for lower cost though. So that was my cost effective option.

Huh, I'm kind of the same way with Gigabyte - my last three systems have all been Gigabyte and I've never had a single problem with any of them.
