dont try to buy cheap motherboard, You wouldn't buy a Ferrari and drive it through Afghanistan would you? - and if you do your an idiot.

Buy a decent motherboard - pref 100+

The Motherboard connects everything. Without a working motherboard your computer is just a pile of tin and copper.

Dont bottle neck a 1155 CPU - Get a Good Efficient Motherboard.

if its a branded mobo (asus, gigabyte,msi intel) then its fine.

cheaper boards just lack some ports and features.

As long as they have on them what you require. Its like buying a car, the entry model would be thousands less than the top spec, doesnt mean its gonna break, it just has less features..

Just for record i dont think a cheap board will break, i can see how you could think that, Sorry.

However i still think that boards that are not cheap will always perform alot better and mean you have the upper advantage for future tech to.

Think about the long term. But its up to you, ASUS and gigabyte are the brands to go for
