What are the components of the computers?

If your not overclocking or using dual video cards, a H77 would be a better and less expensive choice.

Otherwise I would go with the Gigabyte.

the other components are:

Intel Ivy Bridge I5 3570K Unlocked CPU
2tb Sata Hard Drive
16gb DDR3 1333 Memory
Nvidia Geforce GTX 680 2gb GDDR5 with HDMI
Galaxy 3 Gamers Style Case
24x Dual Layer Sata DVD Writer
750 Watt Branded Power Supply
Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit With Disc and License

i probably will try and overclock, so you reckon i should go for the gigabyte then.

If you are not overclocking you don't need a **k** seriers processer. PS: Over clocking is very easy, just look up some videos of the bios you are going to be on the motherboard. I would go with gigabyte because they have the best track record of the mobo brands. I also would use 16 gbs of ram because you won't ever go past 8 unless you use photoshop and video edit. I would also get ddr3 1600 or 1866 it will be more of an improvement.

If it was me go for the D3H.

Hope this helped and good luck.

Also for 15 dollars more (on newegg you can get ud3h which was 2 pci 3.0s so you can run another video card later!
