Hey guys. I'm going to be building my first gaming PC pretty soon. I've chosen pretty much all my parts except for the motherboard. I have narrowed it down to two: The MSI Z77A-GD65 or the Gigabyte Z77X-UD3H.

I will be running an i5 3570k and want to OC it to at least 4.2 GHz using a Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO. For my GPU I will most likely be running a SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 7950 Dual-X that I will be OCing as well. However, I might get a MSI 7870 Hawk or a 660 Ti, still not sure. The max amount of GPU's I will ever run is a Dual GPU setup, not 3-way or anything.

But my question is: Which board do you guys think is better and has better features/layout, especially for what I will be using? The MSI board is cheaper and has a great BIOS, so I'm kinda leaning more onto that side.

I think I would have a hard time selecting one over the other in the end I might just go with the ASRock Z77 Extreme4.
