I am looking for a motherboard that uses the Intel Z77 Chipset, supports LGA 1155 socket, and supports Nvidia SLI. My budget is ~$200, but preferably below $175 if possible. I have been looking and looking but to no avail. I would be so thankful if someone found one that fits these parameters.

With a budget of 175 you can afford a quality board such as Ass or Gigabyte. No need to stoop down to Asrock.

Whats your CPU and GPU?

That helps to determine what to get, not to go for overkill.

CPU: Intel Core i7 3770K
GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 680

EDIT: I will more likely do a GTX 580 SLI (2 card) setup, because it is cheaper than a single 680(at least from ebay).

If u get decent cooling like h100, u will be able to run 24/7 @ 4.6GHz .

Great GPU as well.

If u will run it hard, than $160 mobo is better, than $140.

So far u got quality parts, so I add another one, that matches the level of performance.

I'm actually not paying retail for 680. more like 350, compared to retail 500. eBay has great deals.

ASRock is fine but if u actually want legit SLI theres only one board with z77 that has x16 for both and thats http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
p8z77 ws
its 330$ but if ur gonna sli its the only one thats worth it otherwise just get the maximus v gene


How about this one?

The x16 bandwidth is shared between two lanes, but how do you think it is for the money?

Its as good as the others, that Gigabyte.

The difference between dual x16 and dual x8 is few frames, that's all.

Mobos like that are great if u use 3 or 4 GPU's.

An ass quality board? LOL! But in all seriousness is Asrock an inferior brand? I have heard good things about them.

EDIT: I kind of see what you mean from reviews. The build quality seems to be inconsistent.

I know thats why I'm opting for dual 580 SLI setup.
