Look up the specs, the Asrock z77 Extreme4 is definately something that can compete with it. It costs like $100 less which you could put somewhere else.
EVGA is very solid, and in my eyes the best.
the extreme4 is overpriced in canada. they cost like 179.99 before a 40 dollar MIR (which is stupid since 40 dollars is barely a discount after you factor in tax). better off to get a pro board
evga isnt the greatest given other companies have their advantages such as the msi power edition cards having unlocked voltage and asus having about the best cooling solution. i look only for evga if they have a nice classified edition card
