So I got permission from the boss(wife) to purchase a new motherboard, cpu, and ram to update my 4 year old quadcore amd system. This will be used as a gaming rig. My old system has a 650w Antec PSU and an EVGA 560ti card waiting for the new parts. Obviously my ancient quadcore and ddr2 ram were my bottleneck.

I am looking to buy an i5-3570k for its ivy-bridge goodness.

Now, I need to select a micro-atx (I have a small case) mb and ram. I'm driving myself insane looking at reviews. I've got some Gskill ripjaws memory all picked out.

Which board should I get?

ASRock Z77 PRO4-M

Gigabyte GA-Z77MX-D3H

Thank you!

The ASRock is better. It has more SATA 6Gb/s ports and also better RAM support.
