Hi All

Could you please express your reviews which Motherboard I should buy for Intel i7 3770k?

1) Asus MotherBoard - P8Z77-V LX
2) ASRock Z77 Extreme 6 Motherboard
3) Intel DP67BG Motherboard
4) MSI P67A-GD80 (B3)
5) MSI Z77A-G45 Motherboard
6) EVGA Z68 SLI Motherboard

Above all are available in India and fall in my budget. I am frustrated on finalizing the Mobo so came up with my own list some might find it dumb in case. I'll hardly require OC but still to stay in current I need that option i.e. why going for a unlocked core so no more upgradation is required for least 3 years. For now it will be used for heavy internet researches, Games, HD Vid editing, Office purpose (SQL, Outlook, 3-4 browsers at the same time) etc.

Already bought Intel i7 3770k, Corsair 1600 Mhz 4GB DDR3*2 Modules, Corsair 120 SSD Force Series 3 for OS, Apps and Games. All left is Motherboard which I'm not able to decide.

Rest specs are old which will be upgraded gradually as required:
1) Corsair 500W (Planned to upgrade it by December Corsair TX Series 650-750W)
2) HD Radeon 6770 (Will switch to Nvidia least 2 GB GDDR5 by 2013 mid)
3) 1 TB WD Green Caviar
4) CM Elite 430 (Not sure, the one with USB 2.0) Cabinet (Planned to upgrade it in 2013 Jan with any current cabinet)
5) Razer Lycosa
6) Philips LED 22" HD

Please help me out here so that I can restore my system!!

Thanks!

The z68 and older chipsets are the "wrong" generation chipset for most new builds today. Even Sandy Bridge builds benefit from the new-generation chipsets' integrated USB3 and SATA 6G ports. Only reason to consider the older stuff is discounted prices for liquidation.

ASRock Z77 Extreme 6 is the same quality as ASUS and has better features. It's a very good mainboard and if I were you, I'd buy it.

as everyone else is saying you should probably get a z77 chipset mobo. ASUS makes top quality mobos and they are very reliable so I would say go for ASUS. Asrock is also good but in india you won't find that many service centers for asrock.
