I am using one of these two motherboards which are similar but I cannot decide.
I need at least z77 because I have an I3-3225 ivy bridge and the hyper threading will not work without it.
So help me pick between the two!

I'd go with the ASRock Z77 Pro3
More room for future expansion and it has better onboard sound and hard drive controller.

I'm not sure why you think hyperthreading will only work with a Z77 chipset, but that is false information.

In that price range, you could go with one of these 2 routes...

or

or you could step up a little for a little extra cash to ASUS MOBO's...they are well regarded as the best quality in MOBO's. Something like this...

IMHO, ASUS and MSI are both superior to ASRock in quality, but also in features, especially BIOS. ASUS and MSI have incredible BIOS features now.
