ASRock Z77 OC Formula<--- Hear this is a great board & not to mention the price. If 380$ is your budget for your mobo, you can take those savings & apply somewhere else...

They will both get you where you want to go, between the two let's just say the overclockability of the CPU will be the limiting factor.

Stick with asrock I own a lower end extreme3 AMD board and it OC's like a beast for a low cost too. Not short of features either.

Avoid Asus, they have good products but their RMA department is gawd awful. I would rather take a baseball bat to the jewels then buy another Asus product. I was a huge fan but after dealing with the RMA department I loath them. Its always a risk when buying a product that at some point you may need to RMA it. so take that into consideration.thumb.gif

Thanks for the input guys, I might go with ASRock Z77OC, a lot of USB and stuff, because for now I don't really see the point of spend closely $400 on a MB.
