Is Gigabyte "GA-Z77M-D3H" a good motherboard?
My specs-
Cpu- i3-2120
Card- hd 7750
Ram- 4gb [Soon it will be 8]
My current mobo- Intel dh61ho.
Is it worth to upgrade? Will i be getting some performance boost?

The motherboard will bring you no performance boost, unless your memory is clocked higher than 1333Mhz.
Even then the different would be less than 1%.

The gigabyte board is probably better, but you won't notice a difference in performance.

You would need to either upgrade your CPU or Graphics card to see performance benefits.

no. get a better GPU. something along the gtx660 range will give you tons of boost compared to a new mobo.

I would probably check the pricing of Asus P8Z77-M and/or P8Z77-M Pro.
That gigabyte board is pretty entry level and doesn't do well overclocking for example, where as the asus boards would.

but seriously, dont buy a new motherboard if you dont plan on upgrading the entire system...

your CPU wont overclock at all, your GPU isnt really very good and the motherboard is quite solid ATM.

a new GPU will boost performace the most, since the i3 is still quite powerful for gaming, then when you get more moneys, get a new haswell i5 and a 8x chipset motherboard
