That is likely the lowest end I would go.   Extreme 4 has slightly better audio, better power regulation, 4 USB3 ports.  Not enamored with the slot layout, but I am picky.  For $10 more than the Extreme3, worth it.


MSI- that may very well be a good board, but there is too much history between myself and MSI to ever recommend one.  Fool me once............

To be honest...buying a motherboard is dependent on what you do on a system, IMO.


If you don't do anything special, a simple motherboard does the job.


If you game...and how you game...is an entirely different matter.


It's the unnecessary but desired features...that make a motherboard increase in price and functionality, IMO.


As long as the motherboard socket accommodates the CPU...the additional wants are entirely based on whims of the user/purchaser.


I've always bought cheap boards...but I don't do anything requiring more than a cheap board.
