Im building a gaming rig plans are for i5 3570k, 8gb ripjaws ram, haven't decided on nvidia or amd yet. I was going to go with the asrock extreme 4 and it went on sale on newegg for 114.99 so i was going to snatch it up but then i seen the gigabyte z77mx-d3h for the same price and i know gigabyte is a good brand so i wanted to ask which is better for my purposes. I plan to oc and maybe sli/ crossfire in future Im leaning more toward the asrock because its not a micro atx. Just wanted another opinion

For my money, I would go with the Extreme4. If the Gigabyte was the Z77X-UD3H, then I would consider it, but not the Z77MX-D3H.
Go for the Extreme4. ^ Exactly what he said.
The Extreme4 is an amazing motherboard for it's price. You literally don't need anything more than what it offers. It's the best bang for the buck
They are both good, I would personally go for the Asrock.
I was just about to start a thread about this. I'm in the middle of trying to make the exact same decision. It's nice to get some opinions from other people. I was already leaning towards the Extreme 4 and now I'm leaning that way even more. I have a feeling that's what I'm going to end up getting.
