I am getting ready to upgrade my old Core i5-750 system to a new Core i7-3770k processor, 32gb DDR3 1600 ram, 650 watt power supply, and a 256gb Samsung 840 Pro SSD. I've already upgraded my gfx card to a Gigabyte 7950 (the 3gb oc edition -- not oc'd). I'm trying to figure out what mobo is my best bet for my system. I've been researching and nothing has really jumped out at me. I currently have a Gigabyte mobo and was considering the UD5H, but there have been some really mixed reviews. What say all of you?

ASRock Z77 Extreme4 or MSI Z77A-GD55. 32gb of ram?, for gaming you don't need more than 16gb.

It's looking like I'm leaning toward the ASRock... do you think my 650w supply will be enough for everything or should I look to upgrade that?

What brand is it? 650w should be enough but it depends on the brand.

OCZ it good, Yeah 650w should be good but if you plan to OC your CPU and GPU I would say upgrade to a 750w to be on the safe side.

Like I said before, if this is only for gaming 16Gb of ram is way more than enough and a 3570K is perfect. 3770K is for video rendering etc.

Edit: Please tell me your getting a CPU cooler and not using the stock one.
