Can't find the best motherboard for my needs


I'm willing to buy a new computer soon.
I search for the right motherboard for my system.
CPU: Intel Ivy Bridge Core i5 3570K Socket 1155 6MB 3.4Ghz Tray
Graphic Card: Sapphire HD7850 OC 2GB GDDR5
Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL

I'm not going to do OverClocking. only the graphic card is OC.

What MotherBoard works the best with this ingredients?

    and this is where I feel you made a slight mistake.
    if you bought that case new retail @ $119 then you were robbed.
    you could have gotten a Corsair 300r for $79 ($59 with rebate) and then have the money left over for something else.

    another question...
    if you say your not overclocking the CPU then why did you get the i5-3570K.?
    again you could have dropped down to a lesser non-K and then had leftover finances for other improvements.

    ok, thanks.
    what cpu do you recommend me to buy if not overclocking?
  4. I will stay with the 3570K for sure, even without overcloking.
    I just need the right motherboard...
  5. U can definitely use this one, mentioned above -> 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.
