Yet another motherboard question for new build

Hey guys, I am getting a new build soon and I am quite satisfied with my parts but I am a bit iffy about the motherboard I chose. I posted in the last couple of days a question about whether the "Gigabyte GA Z77X UD5H" was a decent gaming motherboard and I got some helpful replies but I just want a few more clarifications.

I have noticed on a few of the 'new build, need advice'-esque topics that alot of people are recommending the "ASrock extreme4 Z77" motherboard for the majority of builds.

I am just wondering, is it worth getting that motherboard over the Gigabyte GA Z77X UD5H? Is it a better motherboard overall?

Here are some quick links for your convenience if you can be bothered to help me - (Gigabyte) (ASrock)

BY THE WAY - I plan on getting a GTX 670 and an i7 3770K in my build, are there any other motherboards that are better then the two I just mentioned that are not too much higher in price? If so, tell me:) 

I may go SLI or crossfire in the future, so I want to have a motherboard that has room for upgrades and is up to gaming grade :) 

Thanks in advance

To be honest, the only two reasons I'd go with the Gigabyte board are:

1) More USB 3.0 headers (6 vs. 2)
2) Dual Lan

Unless you need those two options, I don't see any reason to spend the extra money on the Gigabyte board.

Wait wait... Asrock is competetive just because their motherboards are good in value that means that they are cheap and perform very good. also gigabyte yeah its the same but u pay for it more. and Asrock motherboards usually got more expansion slots for GPU's even tho those motherboards are cheap but perform very well. So u can go CF or SLI with GTX 670 or other gpu's. but gigabyte is more trusted than Asrock u know they are more longer in the business on motherboards and yeah i think it's up to you u can go for Asrock or Gigabyte. other than that ASUS are the best right now so it might change your mind.
