Which LGA 1155 MB is right for me?

I am going to be upgrading my machine today and plan on getting a core i3 Intel 3.30GHz LGA 1155 Core i3-3220 with 8 gig of ram.

I am just not sure which MB to go with. I am only replacing MB ,processor and memory as I have everything else.

My video card is a GTX550TI.


I want to be able to play newer games at 1920x1080 decently it doesn't have to be the absolute best elitist looking settings but I am sure you get where I am coming from. I am trying to keep my budget on this board fairly low but get good performance and expandability, bios etc. I will not be overclocking so that's not a concern.

I was looking at these 2 board but if someone has other ideas I am all for it:


ASRock Z77 Pro3 1155 ATX Intel Motherboard

Gigabyte GA-Z77-DS3H LGA 1155 Z77 ATX Intel Motherboard

Gigabyte G1.Sniper M3 LGA 1155 Z77 mATX Intel Motherboard
