Okay so I'm almost ready to build a new i7 3770k PC and I have two motherboards in mind. These two are my final choices, I've researched enough that these two will both give me what I want in a motherboard. They both have SLI support, but the EVGA has two more SATA ports, is full ATX and it looks really clean, and awesome (and it matches my EVGA GTX 660 Ti.) Plus, I like that EVGA is an American company so I would love to support them as ASUS is a Taiwanese company. The ASUS also looks really cool and I do also like ASUS, I already have an ASUS 775 motherboard, monitor and DVD drive. The thing is, I like that the EVGA is full ATX... the ASUS is only micro ATX. I've looked at the other ASUS full ATX boards that aren't the weird blue color scheme, but they are too expensive (I don't want to spend over $200.) I know I shouldn't be picky on the color, but those blue ASUS boards bug me for some reason and I've read reviews on them and heard they had memory slot problems, so I don't know. So the main question I want to ask is, how stable are EVGA boards? Has anyone tried the Z75 SLI from EVGA? Also is the EVGA BIOS pretty good? I know that ASUS boards are pretty good and are very stable, etc. but I want to know how EVGA is, since I've never had experience with their boards. But I am really liking my EVGA video card, I have the SuperClocked+ 3GB, and it overclocks even way over the already high factory OC.

Thanks in advance,
Zackary

ASRock, my friend has an ASRock motherboard and had no problems but I don't know of the stability, OC performance, etc.
