actually biostar mobos r quite decent but im not imposing my build on op there might be better options for the price in asus maybe but gigabyte is a little costlier....and if u have not heard the asus mobos(a few) r suffering from multi drop bug(even my freinds getting it) so i would be carefull in selecting...thats why i did not suggest an asus one..if u know a gud one then suggest the op instead of just posting for correcting someone.........
take this mobo instead
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-657-_-Product
i beleive its not a bad choice.......if u r a heavy overclocker then specify that so that accordingly mobo can be suggested...they r gonna cost more.........

This is an excellent Biostar Mobo. It only has one PCIe x16 slot but its still a great board overall. I used one for months and it never did anything wrong.
And it is red and black. Newegg never bothered to update the product pictures.

Get one of the Biostar Mobos recommended, Everything ghost_z chose, a Samsung Spinpoint F3 (500GB of 1TB) and a DVD Burner and you are set.

ur choice is quite nice but its an older chipset(no amd overdrive support i beleive)so im not an amd guy so is there a huge difference in the chipsets i mean 770 vs 880..............
one more thing ur choice has a few drawbacks.....it has older(quite older) realtek sound chip alc6xx
and only upto 1333mhz mem support although mine has newer alc codec and more mem support......
so i would say stick with 880g chipset from biostar.........

Its an older chipset, but this is a budget build, and there is Overdrive support AFAIK. I know it works with the AMD Overdirve software.
The only real difference with everything else accounted for would be the 880 board has USB3 support.
But I agree, the 880 is preferable to the 770. I was just recommending it because its cheaper and will save some money while still performing well.

sorry my bad 770 is supported in overdrive
and that build including the hdd costs around 600usd so the op still has some room for making choices.........
