I just updated my bios and now it wouldn't even boot up :(:(

It just keep re-booting every 3sec, so i can't even get to bios.

Anyone know why and how can I fix it??

The update propably went wrong.. That would be the worst case scenario, as the mobo would be unusable because of that.
Okay. First try clearing the CMOS. Check your manual or read some other threads on how to do this. There should be a CMOS jumper (like this: http://www.dansdata.com/images/133aboards/cmos360.jpg) that you move to another position to clear the CMOS.
Other option would be to take the battery on the mobo out, and wait for about half an hour, so it surely clears it.

And if that doesn't work. Mobo is dead... You could try to contact manufacture to have them "fix it" if its under warranty. Either their BIOS loader screwed up or the wrong BIOS was installed, usually safety checks catches such problems.

Any motherboard can do "gaming"... from $50 to $500.

Question is, what is your current board & hardware (CPU, RAM, video card, HDs) so as to re-use as much, if not all your hardware. If you have an AMD CPU, it wouldn't do much good to recommend an intel motherboard, eh?

If you're looking to upgrade, that is a bit different matter, but still need to re-use as much as you can.
