Go for the ASRock Z77 Extreme4 if possible?

Amongst those, I'd get the GA-Z77-DS3H

Thanks.

I would get the ASRock Z77 Extreme4, but here it cost AR$ 1351.

That´s a 50 % price increase compare to the GA-Z77-DS3H, although in U.S.A both MoBo cost the same.

So I go for the GA.

Hi arzbhatia,

Why would you prefer asrock instead of gigabyte z77x d3h ?

gigabyte has its durability stuffs which i find missing in asrock z77 e4 .

ASRock Extreme4 is the bang for the buck. It's the best you can get at this price range. And all those "Durability" things they advertise are just used for marketing strategy. The same way ASRock using Triple5 or whatever they call technology and their dehumidifier thing. The Extreme4 is a great, durable and budget board which has 99.9% never disappointed a user who has a budget.
