I'm really struggling to decide on a motherboard for my new build. Keep going round and round in circles.

It will include
Intel Core i5-3570K 3.40Ghz (Ivy Bridge) Socket LGA1155
Phanteks PH-TC14PE CPU Cooler
Gigabyte Ati Radeon GD 7950 Windforce 3X 3072MB GDDR5
Cosair Vengeance Low Profile 8Gb (2X4Gb) DDR3 (1600Mhz) PC3-12800C9
Samsung 256Gb 830 Series SSD
Western Digital Caviar Green 3TB SATA 6Gb/s 64 Cache
Cosair 850W AX850 Modular PSU

I was potentially looking at two boards:
1. AsRock Z77 Extreme6
2. GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UD5H

I've read so many reviews now!!! Some good and bad.

Could someone please help decide which board would be best? I would be really grateful.

Budget: Max £160
Purpose: General use and some gaming.

Happy to consider any motherboard. what would you recommend?

go with Asrock as they produce some great motherboards that can overclock well i own an Asrock mobo and have had no problems at all and the uefi bios are easy to use and navigate :)

thanks kenny you are the first person to recommend that board :)  normally i get most people saying gigabyte. I've heard some not good things about the Asrock, primarily to do with their customer service - not that I'm expecting anything to go wrong.

anyone else have any thoughts about what motherboard is best on the market for my needs please?
