I'm building a workstation for an entry level video editing machine ($1300 after tax maximum) for 2K content with a Haswell or Ivy Bridge based system. Are there any good Z77/Z87 micro-atx motherboards that support 16 GB RAM, SATA 3, USB 3.0 and PCIE 3.0 that are $80-$100? Thanks for any help!
I havent been able to find one in your price range that is a z87. Idk if its just me but id save and spend a bit more and get an ROG board.
this one: Asus Z87 Gryphon
or this one: Asus Maximus VI Gene
or this one: Gigabyte GA-G1 Sniper M5.

Cool, could you link me to the least expensive z87/z77 micro-atx board then? I can afford to spend a bit more, maybe $100-$200 for a motherboard.
Is uATX compatible with Micro-ATX cases? I plan on getting a Silverstone SG09 or a Bit Pheonix Prodigy M for the build.
+1. if you can swing it the GENE is what i would do.
u-ATX is micro atx. so yes it is ☺
i also add the Gigabyte GA-G1 sniper M5 to the list.
one of those boards will be a perfect choice.
Thanks for the help!
uatx = μatx =microatx
μ = micro
