The ASUS P8Z77 V-PRO stands out of that crowd. That board is damn stable, an amazing overclocker and has a greeeat BIOS (and comes with awesome softwares).

The MSI is a good choice too.

What really stands out in the crowd is the price. $85 more than the Asrock which does everything the Asus board does.

I would stay away from MSI if I were you, they make junk these days.

I would agree if your on a budget the asrock 4 is a solid choice.The only negative I have for this motherboard is that it slips outside of typical ATX specifications. It’s 3cm thinner than a standard ATX motherboard and as a result may lack secure mounting on the far side since this isn’t a common size, which also means you should be very careful when plugging in the 24-pin ATX motherboard power – as the motherboard may flex. This doesn't hinder it's performance though just makes it feel flimsy and cheap imo i like a little more quality assurance and i don't find a flaw such as that acceptable when i buy a motherboard.That's why i go with Asus plus i had two asrock motherboads i didn't like them overclocked like beasts though.

I have the cheapest H61 Asrock makes ($55) and I had no such issues with flexing.

It wouldn't get the Tom's Hardware award if it was "cheap" and "flimsy" as you allege. Even if it was true, I would simply support the edge of the board while plugging in the ATX power and save $85.

You probably had Asrock boards when they were owned by Asus. Back then Asrock was Asus's budget board spinoff.

Asrock has now passed MSI as the 3rd largest mobo manufacturer in the world and Asus is so threatened by this, they are trying to aquire Asrock as we speak.

Yeah i had the mobos long ago about two years ago if i recall correctly.And i actually helped my friend do a build it felt to me cheap and flimsy and he had issues with the motherboard flexing on him i told him to leave it alone and i finish the build the next day he didn't listen lol and although TH recommended it so does this review but if you read the last page http://www.vortez.net/articles_pages/asrock_z77_extreme... he confirms what i mentioned and also it doesn't hinder it's performance like i mentioned it's a good overclocking budget board ;)

Well like I said, simply support the right side of the board when inserting atx connector. You should do that on ANY board anyways. I mean after that, the board never moves throughout it's entire lifetime. Not really worth $85 to me.

Well out of those three i would pick Corsair AX850 because it's Seasonic built, 80+ Gold, fully modular, 70A 12v power, 7 year warranty but all those are good mate my second choice would be the HX then last but not least the silent pro.

Screw that for as much as those cost i would get this if i was you sure it's more then you need you could run three 680 with it but so what at the price point better deal then the ones your considering plus it's higher built quality. Featuring an exclusive design of “DC Connector Panel with Integrated VRM”, the Platinum Series is set to achieve both near-perfect DC to DC conversion and fully modularized design without compromising efficiency. The hybrid silent fan control allows you to select between S2FC control (silent mode +cooling mode) and S3FC fan control (fanless mode + silent mode + cooling mode) by pressing the selector switch button for the perfect performance & noise ratio. The X Series X-1050 uses high single +12v rail design uses highest durable 105°C Japanese Grade A capacitors and Conductive Polymer Aluminum Solid Electrolytic Capacitors on the Platinum Series for uncompromised performance, reliability and lifespan.

Oh well on amazon it doesn't have the discount so don't matter not worth spending the extra cost i have a question do you only plan on running one 690 or two 670's or 680s if so a HX 750W will be more than enough just so you know nVidia itself recommend 500W for a single 670. Add 170W for SLI & recommended is 670W.
http://www.nvidia.in/object/geforce-gtx-670-in.html#pdp...


For testing conducted for SLI 670, the resulting system consumption for SLI is 433W of which 293W are attributed to the gpu cards.
http://www.guru3d.com/article/geforce-gtx-670-2-and-3wa...



GeForce GTX 690 - On your average system the card requires you to have a 750 Watt power supply unit.
GeForce GTX 690 SLI - On your average system the cards require you to have a 950 Watt power supply unit as minimum.

If you are going to overclock the GPU or processor, then we do recommend you purchase something with some more stamina. http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/evga_geforce_gtx_6...

:) 
hmm i think 850 would be future proof i think because may will have to upgrade something in my pc
i decided to get 1gtx 670 instead of gtx 690 because it is waste of money i am still 19 and 1000 too expensive
and may will buy second card if i needed it in future

but as you told me before that i should get msi pe oc gtx 670 but many people recommend giga byte windforce 670 x3 is it this one??? http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0080I06WQ

and other people recommend ZOTAC AMP Edition NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670 http://www.amazon.com/Edition-GeForce-Display-PCI-Expre...

i am little confused because i started ordering my computer components want make last decision which one i should get and would be best choice for me :whistle:

have you thought about using an i5 3570k instead of the 3770k? If your building this pc primarily for games then your better off saving the hundred bucks and going with the i5 since you will only benefit from the i7 if you do things such as video editing ect... and i do believe the i5 oc is better than the i7 you would have to double check me on that one though. But for the mobo you should check out the Asrock z77 professional Fatal1ty board, its a great mobo for a great price imo. good luck!!

i think i am going with 3770k but there is a problem
that Gigabyte Intel Z77 LGA 1155 AMD CrossFireX/NVIDIA SLI Dual LAN Dual UEFI BIOS ATX Motherboard GA-Z77X-UD5H
not stable with ivy bridge and have to update to Beta F8a version, so does the asus pro have same issues.
i am just disappointed now
