Hello.. I'm building a gaming pc and my budget is 1000$ .
I've chosen all the other parts but still I can't decide what motherboard should I [ick.. here are the candidates :p 

1-MSI Z77A-GD65 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 -

2-MSI Z77 MPOWER LGA 1155 Intel Z77 -

3-ASUS P8Z77-V PRO LGA 1155 Intel Z77 -

I want it to be good at overclocking and has decent futures for gaming.. If you have other boards on mind that you think will suit me better tell me about :D

I can only speak to your 1st link. I have that Mobo in 2 i7 builds. I have not had any problems with either board. The UEFI Bios is easy to use. I have not overclocked but you can do it through the Bios
