Default Need help choosing a mobo for an i5

Hello canucks,

I'm buying this: i5-3570k and I need a motherboard to go with it. I can't say my CPU/Mobo knowledge is up to date, so I'm hoping the community can help me find a mobo that will do the job for a good price.

Here are some facts that may help determine an ideal mobo for me:
  • I use this computer strictly for gaming.
  • I don't care for overclocking potential (for now).
  • I have a 750W Corsair PSU.
  • I need it to support this RAM.
  • My budget is $180.00 and not a dime over.
  • Must be available from newegg.com/.ca (since I will be ordering the rest of the rig from there).

Thanks for your assistance!

- Kara

My System Specs

Default

Newegg.ca - ASUS P8Z77-V LE LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Newegg.ca - ASUS P8Z77-V LE PLUS LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Newegg.ca - GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UD3H LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Newegg.ca - MSI Z77A-GD65 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
Newegg.ca - ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

I'm not sure if you have a brand preference or what form factor you are looking for (ATX/MATX) but these are just a few very good boards around your budget. Out of these i would recommend the MSI. All of them should work with that ram as it is pretty standard spec. hope this helps :)
