  1. Have you taken a look at ASRock Z77 Extreme4 ??

    From the ones you suggest I recommend Z77 chipset simply beacuse is newer

    And the only difference I can find between them is that D3H support Crossfire and SLI and the DS3H only crossfire, so if you are not planning on switching to Nvidia go for DS3H
  2. The bottom one can't do x8/x8. If you want to use 2x video cards, I would avoid that one.

    However, I would highly suggest you not crossfire. Just ebay the current card and buy 1x a bigger one.
  3. Which one is the best??
  4. The Asus is probably the best, but I don't know if you will gain much from spending the extra $.
  5. It is matter of personal preference just pick the one you like best. The first two listed are decent but i am partial to Asus and Asrock.So i would suggest that Asus board. doesn't mean it is better though just what i would pick ;)
