Clueless choosing an affordable motherboard for gaming

Hello,

I'm a bit clueless with motherboards and I'm trying to build a gaming PC, so far I have:

CPU: Intel Core i7 3770 3.4Ghz s1155 8MB, GPU Core, Tray
Memory: G.Skill 4x4GB DDR3 1600Mhz Ripjaws Z Edition Quad Channel CL9-9-9-24
Graphics card: EVGA GeForce GTX 570 HD Superclocked
Boot drive: Crucial m4 2.5'' 128GB SSD MLC SATA III CT128M4SSD2
Storage drive: Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB 7200RPM, 64MB, SATA III WD1002FAEX

I now need to choose a mobo but I have no knowledge of motherboard features, bus speeds and such and I'm looking for something affordable.

Can you suggest a motherboard for my purposes?

  1. 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.
