It's a good board too. Here's a good review if you want:

I don't like the fact that it supports only Crossfire but not SLI. You don't care, I guess (you'd need an 850W PSU for GTX 770 SLI, and it's not needed at 1920x1080 either). Apart from that, it's got very similar features to the other boards we mentioned earlier.
