Looking for an ATX motherboard. Building a pretty decent PC that i can play games on. Will be adding a graphics card in the future.
Would like to have usb 3.0, 5.1 audio or optical output built in.
two monitor outputs would be good too so i can have two screens.
Probably thinking about using the intel i5 processor.
planning on spending about £150 ($240 USD).
Any suggestions on a motherboard?

Anything from ASUS is usually good and finely crafted. They make custom motherboards that can handle great deals of energy output. They DO in fact, make their OWN custom designs. They are leaders, not followers. Hope this did help.

if needed you can check a few local stores on online retailers for an asus sabertooth motherboard
If you have the money it allows for higher overclocks as it handles high TDP CPU's without running into voltage and pll issues
but if you do not plan on doing something like using liquid cooling and pushing some high voltages into the CPU in order to push higher than normal overclocks, then any decent $150 board with at least 6+1 phases will be fine
I'm using the as us maximus v gene with the intel core i5 2500k. And I greatly recomment it.
