Im building a Gaming computer.

PSU 775w
CD Rom
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:

Will be buying everything localy so.. please no newegg or anything like that.
I have frys and bestbuy and microcenter by me.

More about : mobo 200

Thanks.. still havent choosen yet.. and that list has more, i just chose 4+ stars.. full list is here

ASRock’s Z77 Extreme4/ Gigabyte’s Z77X-D3H seems promising

Anything else?

You guys can guy slightly over 200... no more then $225 though.. that includes tax.

Thanks for the help!

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.

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.

So far from what ive seen, i'll chose from below:

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

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.

ASUS SABERTOOTH Z77 will do it for u fine. That would be my choice.

Max control of the system, that's good.
