So your argument is that Asus is a better board? In what way? There is absolutely no way it's better.

D3H is a very solid board, overclocker, and has no major issues as any other Gigabyte Z77X boards. Their Z68 boards were problematic, but that doesn't mean one should avoid them all the time.

Why one would take a board with USB 3.0 that use third party controller when he can get with Intel ports for the same price?

iGPU is not worthless if one uses Intel Quick Sync (in fact, I am converting a video right now). And if you have option to have it for the same price, why would you avoid it?

As for PCI-E 3.0, OP didn't say he is getting 2500K

decent overclocking for an i5-2500k or newer equivalent

So it may not be useless after all.

All these features may seem useless now, but in long term all of them are needed.

I don't need any, the case I'm getting doesn't have usb3 on the front panel. So that doesn't bother me at all. Pci-e is still useful to have for the future, or I might go with a newer cpu. I don't care much about brands, if it works it works.

New Z77 chipset, equivalent VRM compared to Asus, native Intel USB 3.0, ability to use iGPU, and Virtu MVP. Also PCI-E 3.0 support.
I personally see no reason to buy Asus board.
So it has a newer chipset, pci-e 3.0, and those other things.. AND I can find it for cheaper than the Asus. This is starting to sound good. smile.gif

That's a bit too far out of my budget to be honest. Thanks though.

So assuming the Gigabyte overclocks well I should be set!

On paper it is a better board. Sorry, Gigabyte just left a bitter taste in my mouth... I guess i should stop eating motherboards.

May I ask what board did you use? I had bad experience with G965 board, but that was LONG ago.

Every time some of motherboard companies have fail in their line up. With Z77 it's not Gigabyte for sure. Thus, I have that statement in my sig...

I had problems with Gigabyte with their Z68 line-up but I would still recommend and use Gigabyte for P67 and Z77. I love their boards, for the price per feature, and overall quality, love it.

I'd go with the Gigabyte board OP, you will not be disappointed. thumb.gif

I owned 2 asus board and both had major problems that took year or more to get a bio fix. Board I have now would over volt cpu when changing profile. It got fix with the last bio update I did BUT have read that it came back with 32xx lol.

I get GA-Z77X-UD3H if I was limited on cash might be out of you range not sure what different is between it and GA-Z77X-D3H tho.
