I am in confusion for choosing the right Gigabyte Z87 motherboard. I was really impressed with the G1.Sniper 5 but one of my friends suggested to buy Z87X-OC. Comparing both, I fell in confusion. So my choices are G1. Sniper 5 or GA-Z87X-OC. Please help me choosing it. One more thing, I want the best in a reasonable price (from $160~$350).

Do you want the option to SLI/crossfire? Are you stuck on gigabyte? Do you have a sound card already?

It would be better if I had Crossfire/SLI, yet it doesn't matter much. And yah, I AM stuck with gigabyte and I don't need a sound card, the on-board will do my job.

Both are good boards. I would flip a coin myself, but if I had to go off a budget I would get the OC vs. the Sniper, its $200 less... the $200 version is a microAtx...I prefer full sized boards.

If you are a normal human and are not pouring LN on your board, then either one is total overkill. You can't lose :)

crossfirex/sli is available on both
the onboard sound chipset is the same

unless your technically savy, imo the GA-Z87X-OC would be overkill for most users.

then again cost is the same so the GA-Z87X-OC would allow for more customizing in the future
