Looking for a budget gaming motherboard under $120 to go with my Intel 3rd Gen i3-3220 Processor.

I am looking for a good gaming motherboard under $120 to go with my Intel 3rd Gen i3-3220 Processor. I am going to put a SSD in it also a graphics card which I haven't thought about yet. Also I already have a 4gb DDR3 Dimm. Please, help me pick a motherboard. I'm looking into Intel/ASUS/Gigabyte boards since they are the only brands available where I am. Thank you for your help!
Regards,

ZT

    First of all thank you for the advice. The closest thing I can find in my region is this board http://www.gigabyte.pk/products/product-page.aspx?pid=4140#ov and its around $140.
    Although I could see its a really nice board it would be great if I could find something a little cheaper than that. Could you please give some more choices. Thanks

    One more quick question if I'm thinking of going instead of 3rd Generation to 4th Generation i5 does the choices of motherboards stay the same as long as it has the 1150 socket.
  5. Look at Asrock motherboards. Pro3 z75 and pro 3 z77 are nice boards and under 100.
    Edit: Nevermind. Didnt see you said only certain brands where available. If you could tell us what country ur in that would help tremendously.
  6. It will not fit in H87M-E. Your CPU is socket 1155

    This one comes really cheap for me, please take a look also from the standpoint that I could upgrade to 4th generation i5.

    Okay I will, thanks for the advice. Currently in my region I can't find any ASROCK motherboards. So thats why I'm sticking to Intel / ASUS / Gigabyte motherboards. Could you suggest some from these brands, my budget is under $120. Thanks

    4th generation i5 uses socket 1150. That Intel mobo is socket 1155.

    You know thanks alot man, I think I'm going for this http://www.gigabyte.pk/products/product-page.aspx?pid=4408#ov along with the 3rd gen i3. Again, I really appreciate your help along with educating me on the Processor slots ;)
