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?

Motherboard you need is the Asrock z77 Extreme4.

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?

I will stay with the 3570K for sure, even without overcloking.
I just need the right motherboard...

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.
