This MSI Z77A-G41
is $70 after mail in rebate. It's the only Z77 board on newegg under $80.
I don't know! After checking the reviews, the DOAs alone are discouraging. Even those who gave it five eggs (Newegg) had reservations - bad PCI slots, this, that and the other. I'd really like something a bit more reliable, to tell you the truth. But thanks for the suggestion.
