ASRock Z77 Extreme4 OR Z68 Extreme4 Gen3

I just cant decide between these two.
I am buying an i7 3770K so i need to upgrade my motherboard
As far as i saw the Z68 is good for that but the Z77 has more
features like MVP.

I found a new and much cheaper Z68. (Everywhere i looked it was more expensive than the Z77)

    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.

    Thanks
    Z77 for sure now :D
  5. Z77 it is. If u would get Z68, u would have to find somebody with Sandy Bridge CPU to update the BIOS, so it would recognize the CPU : ))

    That is a hassle for most people ...
