Which of these boards is the right choice?

Building a new rig and going with a 3570k or 3770k. I am on a bit of a budget and would like to know how well the asrock stands up to this gigabyte?

Note: I will be buying one of these, but the gigabyte is a bit pricey for me. Also, I don't plan to do much overclocking right off the bat.

Asrock: http://microcenter.com/product/387554/Z77_Extreme4_LGA_1155_Z77_ATX_Intel_Motherboard

Gigabyte: http://microcenter.com/product/386359/GA-Z77X-UD5H_LGA_1155_Z77_ATX_Motherboard

Any suggestions or advice is greatly appreciated, thanks

More about which boards choice
  1. I'd buy a Gigabyte over an Asrock anytime.
  2. Any advice on the 3570k vs the 3770k? I do mostly programming and gaming, with more time than usual being spent on development and linux
  3. the 3770 will only be beneficial with things like video rendering, with just programming and gaming id save money and get the 3570 and if you a building system maybe use it on getting a more powerful video card.
  4. pretty set on a video card atm
