Im going to order all my pc components soon and just doing some last minute checks , maybe save some money . Im having trouble selecting a motherboard due to not having much idea about each individual chipset. My current motherboard selection is a GIGABYTE GA-Z77-DS3H for £70. But from what i can gather z77 and z75 are geared towards overclocking which i have no interest in as im using an I5 3350p as my cpu. Ive noticed if i change to Z68,B75,H61 etc , i can save anywhere from £20-£30. So would i be losing anything by changing to a cheaper chipset?
Not interested in overclocking, i will have a graphics card (radeon 1gb 7790) and i will only use 1 graphics card.

Going to H61 you will lose support for SATA 3 and USB 3. B75 is the minimum chipset I would look at to save some money.
Hm found a gigabyte Z68 , for £50 , ment to be £70 and also found a b75 for £50. Dont want to lose sata 3 or usb 3.
