The ASROCK 880GM-LE is probably good enough as an average motherboard. Im thinking youre putting too much thought into your motherboard and not enough into your graphics card. The most important thing about MOBOs is that they are upgradeable in the future. The ASROCK 880GM-LE only has 2 memory slots, i would suggest 4, for future upgrades. also i would recommend a board with 2 PCI-E x16 slots for future SLI/CROSSFIRE upgrades, and trust me, with the 5770 youll need crossfire to play new games on decent settings. I have has the 5770 and did not like it much but it played crysis for me on max settings but NO antialiasing.
