Gigabyte boards are really high quality. i have one that's more than 10 years old, and still works.

MSI boards are trash, aside from the extremely expensive ones

Yeah, it's not bad.  You can combo it with this guy for under $100 (though you need DDR4)

looks to be a good deal, seems like most places at least online have it for more than $60, though i think microcenter has a combo deal or something for motherboard and CPU for a certain amount off, never been to microcenter myself. just what i have heard

Just checked the website, you only get that combo on $100+ CPU's, meaning you can get an i3 for the same price as the g4560.  I recommend you wait for H310 and i3 8100 to be available and get them.
