The P87ZZ-V, P87ZZ-V Pro, and P87ZZ-V Deluxe are only different in features. The quality and hardware are the same, so pick which one suits your budget and use.

Can't speak for the Fatality, which I think your talking about the ASRock board?
All good choices really.

If the fatal1ty branding doesnt bother you, it's a very solid board. But so are the Pro and Deluxe from ASUS.

Should all be around the $200 mark. The list is in a order based on what I'd buy with that budget.

If you're looking for the best price/performance, I'd say ASRock's Extreme4 for sure (or Extreme6 for better bundle).
edit:
Other boards worth considering:
MSI Z77 GD65 / GD85
ASUS P8Z77-V PRO
ASUS Z77 Sabertooth
ASRock Fatal1ty Z77 Professional
I agree with Blizlake on this. Asrock makes some great boards which are an excellent value. In particular the Asrock Z77 Extreme4 is one of the most balanced and fairly priced Z77 boards out there, in my opinion. It's very feature rich, has a sweet black color scheme, and most important of all it has a 8 + 4 phase power design that helps a lot with stability when overclocking. A lot of other boards that are cheaper or around this price use a not as good 4 + 1 or 4 + 2 phase power design. I am a bit biased since I own one but it's a great board. I've had my 3570K all the way up to 4.6GHz 1.3v stable with this board. I got it at Micro Center for $90 after the $40 combo discount with the 3570K. Unfortunately Micro Center doesn't offer a motherboard combo discount with the 3770K, but I'm not sure if you even have one close by for that to matter.

The Extreme6 looks pretty good too. From what I can tell they are very similar but the Extreme6 has a few advantages that include it's slightly wider, has better VRM and southbridge cooling, a few extra ports on the rear such as DisplayPort and Firewire, and an extra PCI-E X16 slot (although it's a 2.0 and not a 3.0 like the other two).

^ The extreme6 also has better bundle which includes front panel USB3 and something. Honestly not sure biggrin.gif

Biostar TZ77XE4 uses analog 10+2+1 VRM design and it is well under $150, making it the best bang per buck you can get. After that Gigabyte Z68X-D3H gets a vote for premium quality.

ASRock Z77 Extreme4 and Extreme6 all use the same analog (yes, not digital lies from ASRock) 8+2+2 VRM design. They only differ from features.

Cool, that looks like a sweet board and a great value. There are so many great options when it comes to board selection. That's what I love about computer building, extreme customization and selection.thumb.gif Then lets not forget about overclocking.biggrin.gif

Got any source for the "digi vrm being really analog"-thing ? Would like to read about it if it's true.
The biostar does indeed look pretty good, but it's not just the vrm one should think about. CS, bios, bundle, build quality, component quality etc. play a big role too. Not saying that biostar is lacking on any of those 'cause I'm not familiar with them.
