    I think nowadays there's really no such thing as a dud board (well, as long as you're going with known brands, e.g. Asus, Gigabyte, MSI, etc), not some el cheapo mobo with a funny name. The most important thing is to look for the one that supports your intended CPU, fits your casing, and has enough slots for your use (number of RAM slots, number of expansion slots, number of USB ports, etc). Everything else is just icing on the cake.

    I think it really depends on your standards and what you consider "good". The motherboard doesn't really matter that much in this regard, other than its ability to support the CPU you want, the amount of RAM you want (even 8-16GB is more than sufficient), and the GPU you want to install.

    Speaking of GPUs, an ordinary GTX970 can already handle most modern games at high settings in full HD. So what do you consider good? Running smoothly at extreme settings? At WQHD? At 4K resolution?

    There's no such thing as a good motherboard for gaming. Game performance is determined by CPU speed and graphic card. Get a motherboard with the features that you need, it doesn't need to have any "Gaming" branding to make it a gaming motherboard.
