    If I were you I would concentrate on upgrading your graphics card and maybe adding a little more memory. Without those upto scratch it wont make that much difference with a new motherboard.If you are adament that it is just the motherboard you want to change then I would go with Susendeep's sugestion, it is about best matched to your processor.

    Since,you are only going to buy the motherboard and have i3 processor with LGA 1155 socket,then

    ASUS P8Z77-M PRO Motherboard would be best suited for you -

    A new motherboard isn't really the solution – the performance difference of a $50 motherboard and a $300 one is usually below 5% – it's the other components that are important:
    (1) a Core i3 isn't a very powerful processor, whenever something of your video applications isn't GPU accelerated the i3 will limit your performance
    (2) for proper editing using Avid and co. you'll want a powerful GPU, like a $300-500 GTX580/680 or better a Quadro 4000 or the likes which will set you back $800 and more
    (3) Hard drive speed and RAM, you'll want at least 8GB RAM for video editing, and at best a Solid State Drive for good storage performance. Whenever you use a regular hard drive your performance is limited. Usually video systems use RAID1 with SATA3 drives, at best with 10.000RPM as local volumes, and a RAID5/6 SAS/Fibre Channel enterprise storage for the working data (e.g. Avid Unity)

    Seeing as you have an i3 processor, I suggest you set aside some money to get a separate graphics card. This will likely make more difference to performance than the difference between motherboards. Also make sure you have plenty of RAM (if your version of Windows is 64 bit then get 8GB or morem, if it's 32 bit then Windows will only recognise 3.2GB).

    What processor and memory are you planning on using on the board (it will dictate options based on compatibility)? Or are you planning on also purchasing a processor and matching memory for the system as well? If that is the case, are all 3 items being purchased out of the same budget or do you have a separate budget for them?
