Mainstream Gaming PC Motherboard
How does this compare with the tier 7 recommended motherboard: Gigabyte UD3H

I live close enough to a Microcenter to make buying this worth it (since I'd be buying the 3570K as well), but is it much better than the Biostar which would require no driving at all and would only cost about $10 more (and the same after rebate). Mathieu recommends the UD5H Gigabyte board so how is that one different than the UD3H? Any key differences that are really important?

Either of the motherboards you listed should be fine. The basic differences are the features that you get with them. Compare the number of USB, SATA and other features. Choose the one that gives you what you want.
