I've asked on multiple forums many many many things over the past week and I really don't know what motherboard to choose at this point. I've heard good things about Asrock, then I hear things about how their quality control sucks, and how this board is good, then hear it has issues.

I have a budget of about 150$USD for this thing. I'll just let you guys decide. ~Sigh... Preferably Asus or Asrock, but if there is something better, then, okay.

Here is what I plan to use:

- i3-2120
- Sapphire HD 7770 GHz Edition
- CM Hyper 212 Evo Cooler
- Corsair Vengeance 2x2GB DDR3 SDRAM 1600
- Seasonic X-560 560W 80 Plus Gold PSU
- 500GB Seagate Barracuda ~ I think this is SATA
- Asus 24x DVD Burner

Case: I've already asked for suggestions on a case w/ good airflow, and I'm still deciding. Depends on what mobo, because that'll determine how much I can spend for the case.

GA-Z77X-UD3H LGA 1155 Z77 ATX Intel Motherboard <<< I found this motherboard and heard it performs well. So, at the moment, I'm thinking of getting:

GA-Z77X-UD3H (OR) Asrock Z77 Extreme4.

What do you think? Also, I'm considering the Rosewill Challenger Chassis too. :)

And as for the cabinet, get a Corsair Carbide 500R. It's so beautiful, I have it!
