post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Was looking at the MSI Z77A-GD65 Gaming motherboard and pretty much have my mind set on it, just wondering if anyone has something JUST AS GOOD and not as expensive

Regular GD65 is the same board without Killer NIC. GD55 is not bad either. Or Gigabyte GA-Z77X-D3H, UD3H.

It's quite popular 'round these parts, and rightfully so.

There any point in upgrading an ASUS p8z68 deluxe/gen3 for a z77 board for a 3770k?

No, not really. Just make sure that the BIOS is updated to the most recent version first so that it can work with Ivy Bridge chips like the 3770K.

UD4H or UD3H are the best now in price/quality.

With these you can oc the 3770k at 5Ghz without problems (Depends of the chip).
