Im building a Gaming computer.

PSU 775w
CD Rom
CASE
gtx 670 4gb
16gb vengance ram
256gb SSD
2tb HDD
Core i5 3570K

I have the above already

What i need is a good motherboard to go with my Core i5 3570K.

I am a pure gamer, and am looking for the best mobo i can get under 200$
I would like one that can OC well too if possible.


PS. I really dont know how to OC on my own.. so boards with auto OC is nice, but i guess i can learn..

Was looking at Mobo's At MC:

More about best mobo
  1. Asus P8Z77 pro
  2. U can definitely use this one -> ASRock Z77 Extreme 4 -> ... Latest Z77...

    I just build PC with this mobo and I like the BIOS, its looks like this.

    Works as expected @ 4.4GHz



    That is a great mobo choice for the CPU. It has good power design for OC.

    Read this, then buy the Asrock z77 Extreme4.
  6. I have been very very happy with all the MSI Z77A-GD45 boards I've dropped in systems for customers. The price is certainly right.
  7. The ASRock Z77 Extreme4 is a really nice board. I do like the Intel® Desktop board DZ77SL-50K which comes with an extra year warranty over the ASRock but I wouldnt turn down any of them.
  8. So far from what ive seen, i'll chose from below:


    ASRock Z77 Extreme4
    ASRock Z77 Extreme6
    ASUS SABERTOOTH Z77
    P8Z77-V PRO LGA 1155 Z77
    GA-Z77X-UD5H LGA 1155 Z77
    Maximus V Gene LGA 1155 Z77
    GA-Z77X-UD5H-WB LGA


    If you think these are good boards for me.. from what i seen they are.

    I am looking to getting maximum OC and GAMING potential out of them.
  9. Any advice on the above choices?
  10. Best answer
    ASUS SABERTOOTH Z77 will do it for u fine. That would be my choice.

    Max control of the system, that's good.

  12. Was looking at that most, Ill try it then.. suppose i can always take it back if i have too. thanks!
  13. Its really great mobo and it will freak u out for a minute there : )

    So many features to control and fine tune the machine.
