  1. asus p8z77 vpro
    or
    asrock z77 extreme4
    both are excellent.
    Btw which model in i5 is that a 3570k??
  2. Any Z68 or Z77 board that fits your budget and parts http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157293
  3. Yeah it's a 3570 my budget for the pc is around $1700
  4. wow, budget is good enough then why are going for 3570 isn't "K" version the best option.
  5. IF you're not going to get the IB (K) then why even bother with the Z77's, you could simply get an Intel B75, H77 or Z75 Express Chipset. If spending ~$1,700 for Gaming then I would strongly recommend the i5-3570K - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116504
