Again! a 770 chipset based board is out of date! gone! Go for a 785 or 790 chipset board! My top 2 suggestions are,
1. GIGABYTE GA-MA785GMT-UD2H - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128397&Tpk=ma785gmt%20ud2h
2. ASUS M4A785TD-V EVO - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131398&cm_re=m4a785td-v_evo-_-13-131-398-_-Product
Both boards are too good to be ignored! Plus they are in the same price range! Very good value for money!
And, right now, W.D 500gb drive is slower. Seagate barracuda 7200.11 500GB is really good and offers good performance for gaming!
