Warning: your CPU has an LGA 1155 socket, while the X79 motherboards you are mentioning have LGA 2011 sockets. That CPU will not fit there!

If you want an LGA 2011 CPU, you only have 3 choices for i7: 3820, 3930K or 3960X. I think also some Xeons?

Anyway, if you want the i7-3770k you would need an LGA 1155 motherboard. You can get one of the best z77 motherboards around for that price range, which will have the right socket.
