bang for your buck around 150-200$ with a red color scheme
MSI z97 Gaming7. All of the reviews are very positive.
The Msi gaming series and the Asus boards are all pretty good.
i'm not entirely sure because i want a mobo that's good for gaming with good audio. i was thinking asus maximus II hero but i'm not sure if i should go with asus or msi because they both have good reviews... does anyone know if the bios for asus is good? i hear msi is very easy and noobie friendly

Asus Z97-PRO is great but in a black and gold color scheme (if that's a deal breaker). MSI Gaming 7 get my vote as well.
