Need help choosing between mobos for gaming rig

Looking to build my first gaming rig and have everything set except the mobo and was wondering if some experienced people could help chose between some mobos I had in mind.
-BIOSTAR TZ77B LGA 1155 Intel Z77- is the cheapest of the z77 mobos and it fits in my budget.
-ASRock Z77 Pro4-M LGA 1155- Another cheap ASrock mobo and I've heard good things about ASrock's mobos.
-MSI Z77A-G43 LGA 1155- Not heard a lot about MSI to tell you the truth.
Any help is appreciated as always.
Edit: Forgot to mention that I'll be running an i5-3450, HD6870 and 2x4gb RAM.

  1. The Asrock motherboard is the best brand out of those listed.

    I have that motherboard and I can tell you that it does what it needs to pretty well. Just don't get it if you need a PCI slot. I was crestfallen to find out that it doesn't even have one of those since I needed the legacy PCI support.

    Also, you might want to not gloss over the RAM so much. RAM is one of the biggest problems in new builds.
