Aren't all motherboards more or less the same...? Assuming the OP is looking to spend $150 on it. From what I've read from reviews, the performance differences between $150 and $500 motherboards are a couple percent.

No all boards arent the same. Benchmark performance may be similar but the BIOS, features, overclockability and so on is unique to every board. If boards were the same there would be no point in reviewing them.
