ASRock Z77 Professional Vs. Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H

Hey, I'm trying to decide between the ASRock Z77 Professional and Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H motherboards for my new rig. I plan on using the computer for everyday use and some medium/light gaming. I want to keep the price below $200 which was one of the main reasons I ended up with these two boards. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thank you!

AsRock Z77 Professional
Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H

My current build:
Intel Core i5 3570K
G.Skill Ares Series 8GB
Seagate Barracuda 3TB
Samsung 840 Pro Series SSD 256GB
SeaSonic X Series X-850
MSI GTX 670 Power Edition
Corsair Carbide 500r

Edit 1: Also considering Asus Sabertooth

It goes out of my price range by a little bit, but if people think the extra money is worth it, I will consider this board.

  1. Both brands are good. I personally would go for AsRock and I like the color combination lol
  2. you could go with the ASROCK Z75 board if it fits your needs its about 100$ less. been using it in my build and works perfectly.

    out of the two you posted though I would go with the asrock, like stated above the color scheme is very nice :P
  3. Anyone else have an opinion between the two?
  4. using Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H currently w/ 3770k, easy to use and I am OCing to 5.0 np.. Have had no problems at all and based on reviews I read I went w/ UD5H. I haven't had to use GA cust service but I've read primarily good things when working with them and have heard some things back and forth on ASUS if you have problems

    Hope this helps
