Have a 3770, so don't need to overclock. Only getting one GPU in the future and one soundcard. Those should be my only add-ons.

So what's a solid H77 board in the 100 range?

your making an assumption that he has a sandy bridge cpu to flash the bios on a z68 board. OP already said he has a ivy bridge processor

yes they do. only when the bios is flashed. if you have an unflashed bios on a z68 board, you CANNOT use an ivy bridge processor because it cannot read it

@OP, Asrock H77 Pro4/MVP (pro4m if you prefer microatx) or Gigabyte GA-H77-D3H


Those were the two I was looking at actually. I know ASRock doesn't have the greatest rep and I heard some of the Gigabyte IB board have had some problems (no sound, freezing up, etc.). I'll probably go Gigabyte though and take my chances.

Thanks for the replies.

I hear a company called ASUS makes nice motherboards. For $5 more, no headaches.

if asus's h77 boards are made like their post 150+ z77 boards, then their price per performance is alot lower than the others

Asrock has a great rep...have you bothered to read any of the Z77/Z68 reviews on Tom's Hardware?
