Mainly for gaming use
wasnt aware of this. So if u guys had to choose a board for $150 or less what would you choose?

No experience with Z77 boards, but I'd go for a Microcenter combo deal. $40 (IIRC) off most Z77 boards when you buy the 3570K at the same time.

Change the memory to this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231536
Much better timings.

This really the route to go right now if one is accessible to the OP.

For the money the EXT4 mentioned in the first post is a great value and a great performer with a decent layout, and it was really easy to overclock with. What it has over the UD3H that thepoopscooper suggested is a few more SATA ports(linked to the eSATA backpannel), beefier VRM heatsinks, and a slightly better layout for MY case. The UD3H doesn't have the voltage issues, has on board voltage readout points, and has a dual bios. As much as I like my ext4, I wish I would have bought the UD3H instead, the voltage issue on the ASRock is really annoying, and having that dual bios on the UD3H would have been fun.

Also, with the Gigabyte boards, Hackintosh is like childsplay compared to the ext4...it can be done, but its a bit of a square peg in a round hole ordeal.

The 7870xt looks to be the best bang for the buck...I went with a 650psu instead of 450w incase I decide to add second vid card in the future.
Getting a little pricey.... will still need a good mouse, keyboard.... probablly will run on my 47" led on 1080.
Will be building this over the next few months, hopefully options/deals dont change much over the time period, unless its for the better.

Go up to a 7950, it'll overclock well into 7970 levels thus beat a GTX 680 in most games while having more VRAM and being $200 cheaper!

if you're even considering doing a second card in the future go nvidia. no doubt that 7870 xt is the king of price/performance for a single card though.

other than that looks like a solid build to me

Ive always used newegg, tiger, or amazon..... microcenter is new to me. Someone made the comment to use them "if i had access to one"....Do they ship or do you have to find one of their brick n mortar stores?
