Gaming and Affordable are not often used in the same sentence.

Asus motherboards have the best reputation. Gigabyte comes in second. IMO.

It's impossible to recommend any board not knowing how much you have to spend and what socket you want/need.

If you do go Gigabyte do not install the bloatware that comes with it unless you want BSODs.

I've used multiple MSI mobo's as well have had good luck with ASrock both are value added and normally less then ASUS for the approx. feature set.
