whats the budget?
Sorry haha, basically under $100. I don't mind overclocking.
if you want to overclock you should probably push your budget up to 150 give or take 20.

MSI Z87 G45 is a good board. Has everything you want and then some without breaking the bank. It's about 150 bucks. I have it and I have zero complaints.
I'm on the wall between your motherboard and the ASRock Extreme4 after reading this article.
The ASRock has a few extra features that I may would find use for.
Red/Black is my color scheme.. wish the MSI didn't look so good.. ASRock looks boring compared to the others but it's not like I'll have my PC set where I'll be seeing this.
From what i hear, ASrock is not a real trust worthy board. I've had many friends get them and not work or they arent what they expected. What features are you talking about? Do you really need them? I have the MSI board and can assure you that it's everything that's advertised and more.
I could at some point have this hooked to my receiver at home with 5.1. The ASRock board has DTS Connect among some other features I may or may not would use.
