too many motherboards

Hello. First build and baffled by the choices. I have decided on the i7 3770 (not the k, although I know a lot will disagree, as not going to over clock). And the gtx 670 direct cu 2 top. But need a ATX board that will support both.

Mainly for 3d animation and HD video editing. One screen gaming.

Any help would be much appreciated

    Everything else still researching but maybe smaller ssd with partitioned 1tb HD. Was going to work around motherboard.

    Cheers
  4. NEVER decide on your memory prior to choosing your motherboard. Too much chance of incompatibility.

    As you have decided that you won't overclock in the future so there's no use of getting a Z77 based motherboard. Better to buy a H77 based motherboard which has all the features of Z77 chipset expect the overclocking ability.
    And the best I could find is:
