Buying a LGA 1150 Motherboard

Z87/Z97 is gonna be the easiest to find on the used market.

 

Asrock, Asus, and Gigabyte all make pretty good boards.

I guess I'll just look on ebay for one of those boards, thanks!

Today I just got a computer from a scrap yard for free, a Dell Optiplex 9020. I salvaged a Core i7-4770 and 8 Gb DDR3 Ram, and I want to use it to build a different computer. However, since LGA 1150 motherboards are on the older side, I'm not very familiar with the models, so I don't know what model would be a good one to choose. Thoughts?

Requirements:

-New or Used (I wouldn't mind buying used since I want to save money)

-Micro-ATX or ATX

It isn't an overclockable chip so a H87 chipset will work, but I have a refurbished Z87 board and it works alright.

I think I'll probably stay away from the z87/z97 chipsets because it's not a 4770k, so do you know any good h87/h97 mobos?
