Not sure about MoBos

Planning on matching one of them with a

Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 77W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4000 BX80637I53570K

Im either looking at

ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard for $130 [...] 6813157293


ASRock Z77 Pro4-M LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard for $60(when I buy this with the processor i was looking at) [...] 6813157306

I don't know enough about motherboards to know if the difference will be noticeable...I'm assuming I will only notice the $70 price difference.

If you are happy with the connectors on the PRO4-M board being mATX and you are not planning to do run multiple GPU's it should serve you just as well as the other one|13-157-306^13-157-306-TS%2C13-157-293^13-157-293-TS

Your links do not work for me.

The extreme 4 is a full sized ATX board with 7 expansion slots.
The M is a smaller micro-ATX board with 4 expansion slots.

Most of us only need a single pci-e expansion slot for a graphics card.

If you are interested in triple monitor gaming using sli, then the full atx board might be good.
Anything less, and the Matx will be fine. I happen to like Matx because you can put it in some really nice smaller cases.
