    It depends if you plan to overclock or not. Both of these builds are the most price-efficient among other m-boards with the same chipsets. They also are good for CrossfireX/SLI.
    Overclock-friendly board: MSI Z77MA-G45 : $110
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130647
    (Unlocked Z77 chipset, more expansion slots)

    Non-overclocking board: MSI ZH77A-G43 : $90
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130674
    (Cheaper, as good SLI/CFX as the other board, but locked H77 chipset)

    These are lower-cost, higher-value boards in their chipset range. These don't include fancy dual PCI-E 3.0 x16 slots or gold-plated components or fans, but they are optimized for dual-card use. Both support ivy bridge without needing a painful BIOS update.

    (I'm also new to building comps, but I spent hours and hours looking at benchmarks, reviews, and forum topics).
  4. thx for the reply. Will check both of them out .
  5. thx I am going to go with the ASUS P8Z77-V LK LGA that you posted and will go from there
