I want to buy a new motherboard in between ASROCK Z77 Extreme4 VS ASROCK Z87 Extreme4 Vs ASROCK Z87M Extreme4.

My Question is which one to buy. I have a single graphic card XFX 7790. What is the difference between ASROCK Z77 Extreme4 VS ASROCK Z87 Extreme4. Is it worth to buy the Z87. And what is the difference between ASROCK Z87 Extreme4 Vs ASROCK Z87M Extreme4. What does M stand for.

And is ASrock Reliable or should i choose different brand.. Thanks in advance..

Listing your PC specs, specifically your CPU would help greatly. You're comparing a Z77 and a Z87 board. Both of them have a different CPU socket.

The M suffix on ASRock boards usually indicates that the board is micro-atx size instead of regular atx.

Asrock is fine. The Z87 is meant for the 1150 socket, which include CPUs from Haswel line of CPUs, like 4670K for example.
The Z77 is for Ivy bridge, thats the 1155 socket, for CPUs like 3570K.

MAKE SURE which goes with the CPU you choose.

The "M" means it a micro-ATX board, which is smaller and more compact, only use those if they are cheaper or if the case you choose is smaller and does not support full ATX motherbaords.

Hi,
First thing : look at the warranty. If it's under 3 year I would not buy it..
the z77 and z87 is the chipset, usually, the higher the better (to keep it simple) Basically the chipset get match to a cpu and these chipset all allow overclocking (if you have a proper cpu)
The difference between the m and non m is that the non m has more features (surround sound by hdmi, can triple sli/crossfire (instead of 2), 2 more sata ports ect.

I have intel core 2 quad 2.33Ghz. Just now i have seen that my socket size is LGA 775. That means these motherboard will not work with my CPU. ...And thanks for the helpful information.. Is there any motherboard you can suggest me which will fit with the processor.

And one more thing is there any performance different with Socket 1150 and 1155

I would suggest you not spend money on the 775 socket. Its just not worth it. Save up and get a 1150 build.

Then you need to get something like the 3570K if you want to overclock.

It thought that was your total budget for EVERYTHING.
