Hi I am currently building a gaming build. I've finally decided on a Intel core i5 3570k CPU. Now I gotta decide on a motherboard. I'm a very indecisive person so I gotta do this step by step. I've looked into some mobo's for the i5 3570k, and this is what I found:

Asus P8Z77-V Pro

AsRock Z77 Extreme 4

Asus P8Z77-V LX

Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UDH3

I'm looking to overclock (medium). No sli or crossfire. I just want to know what is the best mobo, cheaper the better. I heard people go with the asRock Z77 Extreme 4.

They do, and they do it because it supports SLI/Xfire with decent bandwidth, unlike at least the LX. Are you totally certain you won't be adding a second GPU in the future? SLI/Xfire can be a great, economical upgrade.
