Best Z77 ? help needed please

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi guys im in the process of upgrading my old Q6600 to a 2600k that i already have, ill be using 4 sticks of ram corsair vengeance 16 gigs......and im really confused when it comes to mobo

im trying to achieve the best possible OC i can, not so aggressive tho, im also will be cooling my cpu with an H80....please help me choose the best possible mobo......my budget is around 130 dlls.....and ill be getting a used mobo, possibly a new one here at the forums now this are the options

1- MSI Z77A-GD65

2- MSI Z77A-GD65 Gaming ( no idea which is better besides the color and some gaming options for no lag they are pretty much the same....tho i like the red dragon )

3- ASUS P8Z77-V

4- ASRock Z77 OC Formula

5- Gigabyte Z77 UD5H

this computer will be used for gaming wirelessly mostly, also some video and audio encoding ( meaning bluray and mp3 ) ill be using some samsung 830 128GB SSD

thanks for taking the time to read and help a fellow member in need of help

For your needs it's probably P8Z77-V out of these since it has WiFi. However, it has the worst audio out of those. GD65 is a nice board if don't mind fixed voltage mode only. Gaming board has Killer NIC, and Creative software pack included.

OC Formula doesn't really fit your needs.

With your budget you can actually get a new D3H, or GD55. They're very decent boards, and you will just need a WiFi card.
