I want to try building a mid-end system, with i5 3450 as the processor.
As you see, I don't do overclock, that's why I want your opinion on which motherboard should I use : Asus P8H77-V or AsRock Z77 Extreme 4?
Both have similar prices, and I don't really need the overclocking capabilities of Z77. Both support Lucid's Virtu, Smart Response.
Asus use Realtek® ALC887, AsRock use Realtek ALC898.
I had asrock extreme 4 for my build. it looked pretty slick and easy to install. i'm going to say asrock just because i had it and from the reviews at new egg it seems to me its more popular than the asus.
