Re: Gaming build for teenager

So thinking about the mobo some more, considering these--do you, or anyone else here, have any recommendations for an AM3+ mobo under $100? I have no personal experience with AMD so I am hesitant to go for a cheaper mobo:

MSI 970A-G46 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS - $90
GIGABYTE GA-970A-D3 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard - $90
ASUS M5A97 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS - $95
ASRock 970 EXTREME4 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS - $100

I'm hesitant to go any cheaper than this, although I know there are mobos out there in the $60-70 range.

The Asus you listed was my one of my choices before I picked the crosshair formula.

ASRock is a solid choice as well.
