Hello there,
I have decided to buy either of the two boards but I'm confused in selecting one.
I'm considering a board with dual PCIe 3.0 x16 slots but the ASUS P8Z77-V Premium is quite expensive for me.
So,I found a solution in ASRock Z77 Extreme9 which has almost the same price as that of the ASUS P8Z77-V Deluxe board.

Also, I would be doing SLI with 2 ASUS GTX Titans,hence dual PCIe 3.0 x16 condition,[or is that really necessary?]
I mean wouldn't dual PCIe 2.0 x16 suffice like that on the Deluxe board!
Would be playing graphics demanding games like Batman Arkham City,Crysis 3,Assassin's Creed 3,etc with ultra settings @1920 x 1080p initially with an upgrade to 2560 x 1440p monitor later.

Can anybody list out the pros and cons between these two?

If you are considering two Titans I suggest looking into LGA2011 platform. 1155 is coming to its end of life.

...and I would choose Asus over AsRock because some AsRock boards are extremely thin. So thin, that they are easily bent, and sometimes arrive warped. I speak from experience with several of them. The Extreme4 was one example: http://www.hardocp.com/article/2013/02/06/asrock_z77_ex...
Maybe the Extreme9 doesn't suffer from that same malady.

I would 100% go for the ASUS P8Z77-V Deluxe Support for 32GB of DDR3 RAM, USB 3.0, SATA 6Gbs/, CrossFireX and SLI, LucidLogix Virtu MVP, Intel HD graphics, Quick Sync video, Smart Response Technology, Smart Connect Technology, and more. Additionally, as an enthusiast board, ASUS built it with a robust power design. Utilizing a 20 phase power design built to Intel's VRD 12.5 specifications (16 for the CPU and 4 for the iGPU). It should have a solid foundation for overclocking. ASUS included support for some additional features such as WiFi support, Bluetooth, MemOK, AI charger, anti-surge support, BIOS Flashback and more.

Oh I see.

But the Deluxe board doesn't have dual PCIe 3.0 x16,so,would that result in some kind of bottleneck in game performance?
