I would go with the ASUS P8Z77-V PRO LGA 1155, then again I just prefer Asus to Msi.

edit: Skimmed through this the first time and totally missed the z87 and lga 1150. You have to get the Asus unless you want to get a haswell cpu.

The i5 3570K is an 1155 socket cpu which is not compatible to the msi z87 board you are looking at since it's an 1150 socket. So your only choice is the Asus unless you decide to step up to haswell i5 4670k and get the msi board

As said for a 3570k you need z77 but there is a MSI Z77 g45 (and g65) mobo which won't be too different, I am building right now and am going with the g65 gaming
