On a budget and am trying to choose between either of these two motherboards:

ASRock Z75 Pro3 LGA 1155 Intel Z75 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

and

ASRock B75 PRO3 LGA 1155 Intel B75 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Just would like to know if one is better than the other, chipset differences, etc.

Here's a comparison link:

z75 is the consumer chipset & supports overclocking, b75 is the business chipset & doesn't. that's pretty much it. if you care about overclocking go z75, if not, i don't think it really matters - go cheapest ;)

Probably going to go with the z75 and a Pentium G620, that way with the LGA 1155 slot I can upgrade to an i5-2500k later using the z75 and overclock (also replacing the stock heat sink.)
