Some people might see me asking a comparison of some boards,but after increase of budget i got 2 options.Asrock OC formula and Deluxe.
Things i like about the deluxe:
Got that plx thinggy (now i only have one graphics card)
Wifi and 2 ethernet( using the wifi only)
Things i like about the asrock:
A bit cheaper
More sata ports for futureproofing
Can watercool and active cool the mosfets thinggy
Looks nice.
I have a crappy case(i always focus on components and ignore case so i just get a random cheapass case)--the flimsy Powerlogic Futura 220.i know it cannot fit the asrock,but the board gives free stands so i can put it on a table and chuck that case into somewhere.that case looks horrible anyways and i already threw away the front panel lolz.
Thanks in advance.

You are probably confusing two different PLX chips. The one on Deluxe splits PCI-E x1 to several. It's not CPU lane splitter like on G1 Sniper 3 that allows 4-way SLI.

OC Formula is overall a more balanced board for its price, and Deluxe hardly worth its money, Other boards to consider are UP4/UD5H/UP5/G1 Sniper 3, and MSI Z77 MPower.

In that case maybe... but P8Z77-V Pro isn't much worse, and probably much cheaper? How much are Gigabyte's UD4H/UD5H/UP4, or UP5?

UD3H is a decent board if you can be satisfied with its features.

How much for MSI Mpower?

Otherwise, get OC Formula unless you prefer to pay little more mainly for WiFi.

MSI GD55 and up are decent boards but in your case everything comes down to the price...

Most ASRock Z77 boards have voltage reporting issues but other than that Fatal1ty series are good.

Sabertooth Z77 isn't really worth it.

Since prices for boards that were suggested so far are so similar, pick whichever you like the most, I guess.

What's the goal for this build? No point buying Extreme unless you triple SLI. It's also on the older Z68 chipset, and those boards usually post longer.

If all you need is few SATA ports, good OC and dual-GPU support get something like UD3H, Asus P8Z77-V and similar. Or get the cheapest out of what you've listed so far which seems to be OC Formula.

Don't you experience any BSODs with PCI-E ssd? Last time I've heard of them people had a ton of problems.

In any case all these boards will be equally good for that unless you also plan to SLI.
