    Sandybridge motherboard for around £120

    Anyone recommend a sandybridge motherboard for roughly around the £120 mark (preferably £100 if I don't need to spend that much). I have already bought:

    i5 2500k CPU
    560Ti GPU
    8GB RAM 4x 2GB Sticks

    I have no intention of using Dual Cards but want something that has plenty of USB ports and a few USB 3.0 ports and maybe EFI as well. Any suggestions welcome

    Although if you wait a bit others should come in your price range. That's a mATX board, but that doesn't seem to be a problem for your listed requirements.

    Slightly over budget but pretend your paying delivery and you get your head round it

    Does it make any difference these days on the form factor of the motherboard (ATX vs mATX).
