Yes but still some off them are a lot off money why not a z77 off 70 euros and a 160 euro z77
Why?

features, quality, etc, could be as simple as the look to match other part of your comp.

Understandable to a degree (depends on the individual's usage) thinking.gif

IMO, the silly thing is there are people who will coordinate hardware aesthetics and have no intentions to use a case with a window panel (spending all that ca$h for looks & no show kookoo.gif )

Do not care for looks or features just if it will performe better if i spent more $$$$

If you are the kind of person that does not really care about fiddling with your hardware then there is no need for an expensive mobo, but if tinkering is something you are interested in then you need to shell out the cash.

As for a performance difference, unless you are going to multi gpu or oc the difference is going to minuscule (the average user would not notice). But again some if not most of the pc enthusiasts will see a difference.

get the cheapest z77. an asrock z77 gen3 or something cheaper. wouldn't be surprised if you get monster overlcocks with it. ivybridge are so efficient they don't really need beefy motherboards. I've seen i7 3770k @ 4.5ghz on asrock gen3's
