Have a budget?
If AMD goes down Intel might safely release i9 for $300 and i7 for $200 and i5 for $100 and i3 for free. - su27Chaos<

not really, but I want to minimize cost since I have no idea why I might want a more expensive mobo

There are a lot of different options to choose from for motherboards, but the two main things you might want to know are form factor and SLI/CrossFire capability. There are also things like the onboard sound chip, max amount of RAM supported, mSATA, and SATA 6Gb/s ports to consider, but usually you'll get enough of those or you don't need to worry about them if you're not even sure what to look for in a motherboard.

You have an unlocked Haswell processor, so you should go with a Z87 board, here's a list of some:

Then decide if you want SLI/CrossFire capability and what form factor you want (like Mini-ITX, microATX, and ATX, for example). Also, Mini-ITX doesn't have SLI/CrossFire support.

When I just purchased my new CPU I was looking at:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130695

Which seems like a pretty solid board for only $99 at the moment.

I ended up going for the G45 version since the TigerDirect store by my house was having a sale and I had a $20 off coupon.

Not to hijack the topic, but what's the deal with motherboards designed for the Intels costing a decent amount more than similar motherboards made for the FXs?
