This is my first PC build and I need to know the pros and cons of each motherboard. I'm hoping to overclock in the future and I want a reliable board with good BIOS. I will be gaming with this build.
Thanks!

Here are the two I'm thinking of getting:
1. Asus P8Z77-V LE PLUS
2. ASRock Z77 Extreme4

Both are solid boards, nearly identical. I would choose the ASRock for the looks and the sheer amount of reviews. 4 eggs with 650 review is pretty good.

Looks aren't really important to me. I do wish the ASUS had more reviews but I've always found that no matter what board you look at most reviews say its great and a few say there were multiple DOAs and its terrible. Doesn't seem like any choice is fool-proof
