Quicksync, virtu MVP, which mother board?


I am going to buy a new motherboard tomorrow. I would be buying a Z77 motherboard.
What I want is that I be able to use the Intel's QuickSync technology for transcoding videos.

I have a Nvidia GTX 560 Ti 1GB video card, 8gb ram, intel i5 2500K.

I want to be able to do some medium level overclocking with the motherboard, quicksync, and probably and Virtu MVP.

My question is, do all the Z77 chipset motherboards support quicksync even if I am connected to my GTX 560 Ti? Or does it need to support Virtu MVP in order to do that?

All my games run fine with 560 Ti alone so I am not concerned about gaming. What i'm concerned with is the Video encoding.

How can I gain any potential speed when rendering/transcoding videos. I've been looking at this motherboard,

http://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/MX41939 (MSI Z77A-G41 for $69.99 after mail-in rebate)

and http://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/MX39431 (ASUS P8H77-I for 104.99)

another thing? what's the difference between H77 or P77 or Z77 ?

second, would I get what I want from all of my choices or the only one's that specifically says Virtu MVP in description?

would this motherboard (http://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/MX37645) MSI Z77A-G45 support quicksync while connected to GTX 560 Ti?

  1. I guess after little bit of research, i figured out this.

    H77 doesn't support overclocking and multigpu support.

    Z77 does.

    I am going with this, http://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/MX38912 (GA-Z77-D3H w/ DualDDR3 1600, 7.1 Audio, Gigabit Lan, CrossFireX, HDMI)

    This will do what I need. Virtu MVP, quicksync and overclocking.
  2. Thanks..
    I went with the Asus P8Z77-V LK you recommended.

    It is great so far, However, after successfully installing drivers for Nvidia, Intel HD3000 and VirtuMVP, I can't use Quicksync on mediacoder or MediaShow. (I'm connected to my GTX 560 Ti)

    does any one know, what am I missing? Thanks.
