I am going to be building a new system soon for mainly gaming and i am having issues choosing a motherboard, my budget is around 80 POUNDS and i have found 3 that are very similar in price but im not sure which is best for an i5-3570K and a 7950 3GB which would be best for overclocking?
MSI Z77A-G45

Gigabyte GA-Z77-D3H

Also, is the motherboard an important component? should i spend less on my cpu and gpu to get a better motherboard?

Thanks in advance.

I choose the Gigabyte. It has more features than the overpriced ASUS, and I don't generally suggest MSI motherboards, so yeah.

Should i spend less on my CPU and GPU and spend more on the motherboard? or will the Gigabyte be fine?

I could find little to no info about the casing, so I can't say for sure, but it doesn't look like it'll fit.

How much are you willing to go for a casing?

I'm willing to pay around £45 for the case which is around $70 :)

I recommend the ASUS because I have no problems using ASUS motherboards since I'm 2, creepy eh? Anyway, ASUS is more stable if you do overclock, enjoy!
