ASRock Z77 Professional Vs. Gigabyte GA-Z77-UD5H

Hey, I'm trying to decide between the ASRock Z77 Professional and Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H motherboards for my new rig. I plan on using the computer for everyday use and some medium/light gaming. I want to keep the price below $200 which was one of the main reasons I ended up with these two boards. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Edit 1: Also considering Asus Sabertooth http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131821

It goes out of my price range by a little bit, but if people think the extra money is worth it, I will consider this board.

  1. I prefer Gigabyte boards. Used them in my last 3 builds. (Not that particular one though)
  2. Anyone else?
  3. i have an asrock board for myself and just build a system for my brother with a ud5h and i prefer the asrock boards. the asrock board boots much faster but the ud5h does have more usb 3.0 headers. i would actually just go with an asrock extreme4 over either of those since its much cheaper.

    Yeah, I looked at that board but I wanted more than 4 6Gb/s SATA ports which was the only reason I crossed it off my list.
