  1. H77 since you do not need the overclockability of the Z77.
  2. It truly depends on your use.

    If you are just after a computer for general computing (emailing, word processing, media) then perhaps a H77 board would be what you are after.

    If you are after gaming, overclocking as well as the general computing needs then the Z77 boards would be more of what you are after.

    His I3 does not overclock since it is not "K" version.
  4. No I realize that but say he went out and upgraded to a i5/i7 its a future question/point for him to question himself on.

    Which is a viable point and OP really should consider.
