So i'm going with the ivy bridge 3550 for my new build and trying to decide on a mb.

I won't be overclocking or using dual gpu's so im thinking i should just go with the h77?

If i go with this model:

Gigabyte GA-H77M-D3H
http://www.umart.com.au/pro/products_listnew.phtml?id=1... $91

over a : Gigabyte GA-Z77-D3H
http://www.umart.com.au/pro/products_listnew.phtml?id=1... $129

will there be any difference performance wise or just the lack of overclocking and afew less usb ports and things which i'm not really worried about.

going to be using the build for gaming mostly if it makes any difference.

Agreed, if you really have no plans whatsoever to OC, than the H77 is a fine board.

However, especially for gaming the ability to OC can give you a sizeable boost in performance, and nowadays is so much easier than it used to be. You really just click the auto button if you don't want to dig down into it, and boom, you extended the life of your computer.

It's really up to you, but for $40 bucks, the ability to OC in the future would be worth it to me, instead of changing my mind later and having to drop $ for a whole new board.
