i5 3570k and SLI ready Mobo

Hello people, currently in the stage of deciding what parts to buy for building my own pc.
im going with a
cooler master storm scout
8 gb of kingston ram
128 ssd
wd 1tb black hdd
asus gtx 770
i5 3570k
corsair 850w psu
lg dvd drive

anyhow, im was planning to go SLI with 2 GTX 770's when the price drops ( hence the 850w psu). i need a mobo that is SLI ready for 2 asus gtx 770's and has good synergy with the i5 3570k.
120£ or less ( 190 $ or less)

thanks in advance

  1. I'd rethink that ...... this reviewer said it best

    I don’t think there’s any compelling reason to move from an Ivy Bridge or even a Sandy Bridge based system to a Haswell system– there simply isn’t enough performance and feature differential to justify it. On the other hand, if you’re building a new rig from scratch, there’s little point in investing in end-of-life platforms, so going Haswell/Z87 makes sense.

    This build is $1,373

    Reasoning on case switch
    Storm Scout 8.95 rating
    Corsair 500R - 9.25 rating

    Advice is MSI Z87 G45 or Z87 GD-65 as if your Z77 MoBo breaks 10-12 months down the road, you will not be able to replace it....which means buying a new Mobo, a new CPU and likely a new OS if ya used Windows OEM since ya will have new chipset, LAN and other items which should be enough to trigger non-activation.

    If that doesn't bother you, then the Z77 version of those boards will do the job, just cross ya fingers that they last till ya next build.
  4. what about the asus z87-a? seems to be a good mobo, or am i wrong?
