Help, Which Micro ATX Z77 Motherboard?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Well, I was planning on getting a Asus Maximus V Gene, but I recently had to buy a pair of glasses, so trying to save what money I can. Is there any other good Micro ATX boards out there?

I plan on running the following:
i5-3570k
GTX 660 Ti
16Gb Ram at 1600
1 SSD
1 HD
1 Blu Ray Drive
Thermaltake Water 2.0 Performer
Silverstone TJ08-E
650w PSU

I could try overclocking but never done it before, so would need a motherboard that would be nice to me.

May do SLI


Edit:
What bout the Gigabyte G1 M3 Sniper?

Worried about how it can overclock by itself, one reviewer at Newegg said something about that.

Is it okay to bump? I waited around 2-2 1/2 days.

G1 Sniper M3 is good. Should be enough for your needs, and it's also a decent overclocker.

I can't recommend any cheaper board than M3 and MVG since I am only familiar with those two micro-atx boards on the market that don't sacrifice quality.

MVG has more SATA ports if that matters to you.
