This should be a nice build, I think I found some great deals here. The 7870 XT performs between 7870 and 7950.

Still don't know which mobo to choose!
My aim is to OC to mid 4GHz.

I've narrowed it down to:
Asus P8Z77-V
Gigabyte GA-Z77X-D3H
Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H
ASRock Z77 Extreme4

Ahhh my brain!

The Z77X-D3H for $95 is a no-brainer.

Let me get this straight: the D3H is an UD3H without onboard buttons and voltages readpoints and without 2oz Copper PCB, so concretely it changes almost nothing.

Checkout this review of the Z77X-UD3H:
http://www.overclock.net/t/1252290/z77x-ud3h-review-and-oc-testing-circuit-analysis-ln2-runs-efficiency-comparison/0_20

This board also got a World Record of 7.032 GHz frequency on LN2, means that it's very capable at overclocking.

Considering that D3H and UD3H are practically the same, I'd go with the D3H which is sold for a great price.

BTW, I wouldn't go with the Extreme4, mediocre MOSFETs, faked vCore readings and analog PWM.

Is this board any good?
ASRock Z77 Fatal1ty Performance Intel Z77 (Socket 1155) DDR3 Motherboard

It's 30% off discount!
It makes it cheaper than all the boards I've listed above.
