Hey People!

Im building a new computer from an:

Antec 1200
Asus M4N82 Deluxe 980a
AMD Phenom II x4 965
8GB DDR2 Hyper X
GTX 570 Sonic Platinum
850w Antec CP

Im looking for a new motherboard that fits socket 1155 (Intel i7 3770k) and was just wondering which one to buy! Money is no problem (well not like £1000 on a motherboard but I will pay around £400 if I have to) Im looking at these:

If there are any that you think I should get instead, please let me know. Im a IT Technician so I understand all the computer language so dont hold back! lol Just really hard to choose.

The Asus P8Z77-V DELUXE is a good mid-range motherboard suitable for all uses. The Gigabyte UP5 is a superior board, but you pay a premium for those spanking new thunderbolt connections (and lose some USB ports along the way).

So would you say get the Gigabyte? and is this the best in its range? because if i can spend a little bit extra an get like a 'monster' motherboard then i will haha

Think im going to go with the UD5H instead of the UP5 as I dont need Thunderbolt an that seems to be the only big improvment which isnt worth the £80 difference lol
