Please help me choose a motherboard

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So I need a new motherboard as my 880g-E45 isn't right for what I want to do. I was looking around on newegg for some good MBs and the Gigabyte MBs seem to be pretty decent. Does anyone have any suggestions?

What I am looking for:
Good OC capability
4 ram slots
USB 3.0
Compatible with all of my current hardware (AMD Phenom II x4 840, Nvidia GTX 560)
Preferrably under 100 dollars, but I'd be willing to go up to 140

Thanks in advance!
Also, any advice for MB migration would be greatly appreciated.
