It seems like after I gathered a lot of information for here and other sites. My Asrock motherboard seems to have shorted/died.

 

I'm looking for another motherboard for my I5 3570k and GTX 660TI.

I'm not a computer expert so when I got the supplies to build my first rig, it was from the help of others.

 

 

I just need a good solid mobo if there aren't any gaming mobos; if there is even such a thing.

Somewhere around the $100-150 range is just the perfect price range for me.

 

 

I don't know if the case matters too but I got a new case and it looks bigger than my previous case also. 

The case is a Corsair Graphite Series 230T. 

 

 

Thank you!

I am pretty much a noob so I'd like to know why a certain mobo is good.

A little over your maximum budget but after claiming the mail in rebate the MB costs $129.99 + shipping, ASUS P8Z77 V it has built in Wi-Fi and is both Sli and Crossfire compatible, ATX type with USB 3.0 headers which will both go nicely with your Corsair Mid tower chassis, that is only four of the boards benefits and the ASUS homepage gives a lot more in depth information, see here

Thank you! It looks amazing! It may be a little over but whatever! It looks very promising. Thank you!
