Good value gaming Motherboards

Hey guys, I have been wanting to build a new gaming computer recently & I have been looking for a lot of parts.

These are the parts I have chosen to use for my new computer:

Processor(CPU): Intel Core i7-3770K 3.5gHz LGA 1155 $300

CPU Cooler: CoolerMaster Hyper 212 EVO CPU Cooler $35



HDD (HARDDRIVE): Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200 RPM $70

SSD (SOLIDSTATEDRIVE): Intel SSD-520 Series 120GB SATA3 Solid-State-Drive $95

Graphics Card (GPU): nVidia GTX 660 Ti 2GB $315

OS (OPERATING SYSTEM): Windows 7 Professional 64bit

I need a good value motherboard, but I cannot choose one I like, there are many, but I have no idea which to choose because it confuses me of how many different varying reviews are on 1 motherboard so I would like your suggestions on which motherboard I should get & also if you'd like please suggest if there's anything I should add/remove to this build.

  1. ASRock Extreme 4 Z77.

    Is this build specific to gaming? If so you might want to look into an i5, unless you have more uses for the computer.
  2. Not just gaming, but 'mainly' gaming, I also do light video editing & photoshopping. I also have to record videos & stuff for my youtube account. But yes, I've looked at the i5-3570K & i7-3770k and I've decided to go with the i7.

    Anyways, that seems like a good motherboard, I'll look into that.

    Any other suggestions? :)
  3. As long as you're doing more then just gaming, then yeah go with the i7. The HT will help with it. I know people also like a Gigabyte board that is in the same price range, let me see if I can dig it up real quick.


    That one I believe. Z77 with OC.
