I am building a new pc with an intel core i5 3570k processor, but I can't decide on a motherboard. Here are a few that I have looked at that are really great for my price range:


AS Rock z77 Extreme 4

As Rock z77 Extreme 6

Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H

Should I get one of these or a different one? Keep in mind that I would like at least 2 PCIe 3.0 slots and one PCIe 2.0, other than that I am not really sure. also, here is my tentative build on pcpartpicker for reference:

ANy advice or help that you can provide is appreciated!

I would highly recommend that you check out Gigabyte's GA-Z77X-UD4H, it has much improved memory performance over the 2012 models, and has the same heatsinks that more expensive Thunderbolt models have. I frankly think it's a bargain.

I personally own ASUS LK, it's fine but really flimsy because it's not a full ATX size so you only use 6 screws to secure it and when you try to connect things at the very right end side it bends like hell.
