Define much? The Z77N is only $20 more than the H77N typically. I do however agree that with that chip the extra benefit would only be a later upgrade to a quad core you can overclock. Like I said however the Gigabyte H77N is the same as the Z77 except no overclock and less money.. a pure win for this build.

The gigabyte isn't available as a combo with the case I want. I think I'm going to go with the P8H77-I and Elite 120 combo for $130. I don't see a huge advantage of going with the Gigabyte board, and I generally prefer Asus. Little things like the q-connector matter to me smile.gif

With the bundle your right I would go the Asus as well. If it was just the boards I like the Wifi better on the Gigabyte as it also does WiDi for Intel.

I have a usb wireless adapter. The wifi doesn't mean much for me. Thanks for pointing that out, though.

I would really prefer an even cheaper option. I don't want to invest a lot in this thing. It's just too bad there are no h67 options anymore, or any low budget boards with sata3. Sata3 that isn't a Marvell controller, anyway. tongue.gif.
