Hi there!
I´m between these models:
Asus p8z77m
Gigabyte GA-Z77-DS3H
Asus P8Z68-V GEN3
But I don´t know if the benefits and little differences between each of them are really that important.
I´ll like any of them to work with an Intel processor i7 2600k 2º generation, and a video card that I´m still deciding, but will probably be between the GTX 570, GTX 670, ATI Radeon HD 7870 or ATI Radeon HD 7950.
There are several dollars between those models, and I don´t know wich one to choose...
Gigabyte GA-Z77-DS3H is the cheappest of the three of them, followed by the Asus p8z77m. And the Asus P8Z68-V GEN3 is the most expensive.
Thanks for your help!

The ASUS P8Z68-V is the best for OC the i7-2600K; SLI and CF support. The GPU depends on your budget, resolution and games you play. The update to the ASUS P8Z68-V (or Pro) is the ASUS P8Z77-V or ASUS P8Z77-V Pro.

The ASUS P8Z77-M is a mATX and no SLI/CF support and is not a great OC'ing MOBO. The Gigabyte GA-Z77-DS3H is a mediocre OC and CF only MOBO.

An alternative is the ASRock Z77 Extreme4.

The Z77 vs Z68 makes little difference with a SB CPU.
