ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI or the ASRock Z77 Pro4 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI. What are the differences?

DDR3-2133 isn't worth it, you will see no gaming benefit going over 1600mhz memory.

Either board is fine, but I will say go with the extreme4.

Those 2 motherboards are pretty much the exact same. For the sake of saving money, I would go with the cheaper one.

The "Budget" AsRock MoBo pairing with the most expensive CPU and most expensive memory seems an odd pairing.

Be that as it may, you can compare them here:

The two boards have some very significant differences. Main differences are the more expensive one buys you a 2nd PCI-E 3.0 slot, SLI capable, better audio, more USB 3 / less USB 2 and "Gold" caps.

Hm, I don't know about that, but if that is true then do it.

For gaming though it won't help you much over 1600mhz.
