Looking For a Mobo For

a 3570k and a 7870ghz edition. Not planning to OCing the ram or CPU

This is a build for a friend who's main concern is just GW2.

I'm actually not that fully familiar with intel chipsets, so I would like to know if there are some good motherboards $100 or less



Get this^^^ And get some DDR3 2400 ram. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231587 Should be nice with that combo.

100$ or less is a little tight for a z77 chipset, would you be overclocking ? and what is your absolute budget ?

Like I said in my post, there isn't any plans for OCing and as for the budget, none,

I already have the build config'd, just wanted to throw this Q out there if I can find a cheaper priced mobo to shave a $ few off.

If possible...or just shell out $130ish for a z77 that mostly all of use recommend for any intel based gaming build?


No plans on OCing? Then just go with a B75 board. It's a some-frills chipset
