New build Ivy Bridge, help me with my motherboard please!
Can somebody suggest me a good motherboard please?
The rest of my build is as follows: i7-3770k 8gb Corsair Vengeance ATI HD7850 Corsair force 120gb SSD Antec 902 case + Corsair H80 cooler XFX 550w PSU
I don't think I want to SLI/Crossfire unless anybody can give me a good reason to do so. (It's double cost/heat/power for less than double the performance + a load of bugs/hassle!)
I will be overclocking a little, but not a lot. I can order by UK sites like dabs, ebuyer, scan etc.
And while you're here... does that build look sensible? Cost is £850 + the Motherboard.

That price was including Win7.
Forgot to mention - I don't even know what special features the Z77 motherboards have. No idea what difference there is between the £90 asus motherboard and the £170 sabertooth besides the extra PCI3 slots.
