Motherboard swap?

Right now I'm sitting on a Intel DZ77SL-50K board
Unfortunately it doesn't give me what I need:

No SLI, no 5.1/7.1 audio, not enough SATA, few USB 3.0 portts

My question is, is it a good idea to swap out motherboards to increase functionality AND to possibly SLI my card?
And if it is, what board should I switch to? I was thinking the Gigabyte Z77X-UD3H

Intel DZ77SL-50K
8GB DDR3-1333 Kingston HyperX Blu
EVGA 560ti Superclocked Edition
Seasonic 750W PSU
Antec One
Windows 7
Dual Acer S240HL

yeah you can swap motherboards for more functionality...AsRock and Asus brands are my favorite...gigabyte is good I just dont like their colors lol
also make sure to backup your data because once you swap the motherboards you will have to reinstall windows. your current windows will not boot with new hardware as drivers will be conflicting
