More about what motherboard 3770k
  1. got a budget?
  2. the motherboard a user desires is entirely depending on what they want almost. as the more you pay, the more features you get. Its user defined on what point where you think the features aren't worth the price.
  3. I am a Graphic designer but i do some gaming. In terms of budget nothing over 300
    :D

    How many GPU(s)? There are a few LGA 1155 Z77's that also offer PLX chipset to allow more than the typical two (2) GPU limits.

    A more professional LGA 1155 option is the ASUS P8Z77 WS but it's not cheap at $340 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131822

    Another consideration is the CPU itself and if your rendering times are long then IMO the LGA 2011 / SB-E is a better option and will significantly reduce 'rendering times.' If your work is final product then a Xeon + ECC + Pro GPU(s), and with the LGA 2011 platform 8-core Xeon is an option with 8x16GB (128GB).

    Quite often having two separate systems is a frequent choice, but if you want both options then the ASUS WS MOBO's are a good consideration. Example LGA 2011: i7-3930K and ASUS P9X79 WS. Cinebench R11.5 - http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/cpus/2012/05/01/intel-core-i5-3570k-cpu-review/3

    /edit - I 'get' your budget but I also 'get' your use. Upfront money = Less Rendering Time <or> pay now or pay later...

    +1 for TheBigTroll

    ASUS P8Z77-V PRO/THUNDERBOLT for 219$ vs ASUS P8Z77-V PR0 Without thunderbolt for 209

    I would say go with TheBigTroll choice. 10$ more u get thunderbolt lol

    I am probably getting 2 GPUs trying to get something cheap with alot of power. In terms of rendering times I think that until they make more affordable to get 6 or 8 core to much money to invest right now.

    Ty guys for the help if you guys have some advice on GPU feel free to give me ideas :D
