    Maybe not there both good get the cheaper one. ;)
  6. I am pretty sure there is more to it then that.In all seriousness the guy that stated that is one difference is either missing something or does not know what he is talking about think about it GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UD5H would never do very well in sales if that were true.GIGABYTE knows that and would not even bother with such a bad for business risk.
