    Good i5 Motherboard?

    Simply. . . What is a good motherboard: Not the damn $180 one. That fits a i5 3750k processor. I want it to have LAN and be pretty good. I'm looking for around 60-70 dollars cheaper. I don't want that $180 z77. If I have to I'll get it, but looking for a good one for cheaper.

    Three different MSI motherboards, all $10 price difference.

    MSI Z77A-GD55 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS - Newegg.com - I recommend this one if you want a regular board but free RAM.
    MSI Z77A-G45 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS - Newegg.com - I recommend this one if you want a regular board but different RAM.
    MSI Z77MA-G45 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard - Newegg.com - I recommend this one if you want a smaller board.

    Some other motherboards,

    GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UD3H ATX Intel Motherboard - Newegg.com
    ASUS P8Z77-V LK ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS - Newegg.com

    Honestly, I recommend the Gigabyte board or the MSI board (Normal, no RAM).

    EDIT: Oh, they all have 2 PCI-Express 3.0 slots so you can SLI/Crossfire cards in the future without having to upgrade your motherboard.

    If you haven't already got the mobo yet @Utazchet , make sure it includes the following: 2x USB 3.0 (atleast 4 USB's in total), PSI-Express 3.0 slots for your graphics card (Save you a lot of money in the long run if going for high-end cards), atleast SATA III and SATA 6 gb/s sockets.
