The ASUS P8H77-I and P8H77-V seem like nice H77 boards.
VirtuMVP does have some advantages but it doesn't work well on some games. You won't need it if you have a good graphics card, something like a 560Ti/6850/6950 would be enough to handle your graphical needs without the software/tweak.
I was wondering about virtumvp more for how you can switch back and forth and save your gpu if you're not doing anything that needs it. Would your graphics card be helped out that much if you could switch it off for most everything but gaming?
