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.
