Hi everyone, i'm undecided on which motherboard i should get. I will be buying it tomorrow so i can't order off newegg or amazon, that being said i can't get an asrock. Asrock's are expensive and not widely carried (the pro4 is $130 at canada computers). I have a budget of around $130 but i stretched it a bit. My three choices are the asus p8z77v-lk ($140), the gigabytze ga z77x-d3h ($135), and the msi g45 ($130). I was planning to get whichever cheaper. I am not familiar with computers but will attempt to overclock later on when the cpu gets sluggish and i have read up and learned how to do it. The rest of my build is:
case: msi interceptor stealth series processor: intel i5-3570k video card: sapphire 7870xt memory: corsair vengeance 2x4gb hdd: either a seagate barracuda 1tb or wd black 500gb psu: antec hcg 620m wifi adapter: TP Link TL WDN4800 cpu cooling: cooler master 212 evo

Gigabyte Z77X-UD3H if you can get it.
I can't, it's $155. it's out of my stretched out budget range. Maybe it will go on sale tomorrow.
