Picking a z77 Mobo for under $200?

post #1 of 4

These are the top 3 motherboards that i like. They all seem to be extremely similar.

MSI Z77A-GD65

I will be running an intel i7 3770k with watercooling

I also will have one 7970.

Any and all input is greatly appreciated. If there is a better motherboard for under 200$ i would live to know.
Thanks for the help:)

I like the Gigabyte UD4H, it clocks my 3570k to 4.5 @ 1.32 volts

Depends on what you need.

Lots of boards for that budget besides those which you already listed. Gigabyte UD3H, UD4H, UD5H, UP4. Asus P8Z77-V, V Pro.

The main thing that i want is overclocking. I want to do some high overclocks with the i7. And honestly looks are also important to me thats one reason i picked the Msi MPower, i like the way it looks. But, if a different motherboard has more features or better overclocking i would be open to that.
