Im kinda confused which motherboard to buy. Can you guys help me suggest a reliable and durable h77 motherboard from Gigabyte or Asus?

Based on the user reviews i read from newegg, Gigabyte (h77) mobo have outdated bios and doesnt support ivy bridge cpus. On the other hand, Asus mobos tend to break easily especially the ram slots...

So which is which.. ill be using an Ivy Bridge cpu i7 3770. Im not gonna overclock, no SLI.

Please suggest a good and reliable H77 mobo from asus and gigabyte.

Main usage for graphic design and gaming for starcraft2 on max settings. Thank you guys...

There is no such thing as an H77 motherboard that doesn't support Ivy Bridge CPUs. H77 is one of the chipsets released specifically for Ivy Bridge.
And Asus is generally known for quality, so RAM slots breaking easily... I dunno, I wouldn't trust a user review on it at least. User reviews are kinda useless.

Well it does depend a bit on your priorities too. But an Asus P8H77-V LE is one example of a good board.

This is what i have in mind:

1. Gigabyte GA-H77-DS3H

2. Asus P8H77-V (not the LE coz it doenst have the Onboard USB 3.0 Header)

So which is which? or can you suggest a very good one?

The LE does have a USB3.0 header. It's right next to the 24-pin motherboard power connector.

The Gigabyte GA-H77-DS3H has an advantage with the mSATA port for SSD caching. The Asus boards both have optical SPDIF out, so that's a point in their favor.
