Which Motherboard?

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
Asus P8Z77-V LX
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.

More about which motherboard
  1. I choose the Gigabyte. It has more features than the overpriced ASUS, and I don't generally suggest MSI motherboards, so yeah.
  2. Should i spend less on my CPU and GPU and spend more on the motherboard? or will the Gigabyte be fine?
  3. Oh and another question, will an i5-3570K + CM Hyper 212 EVO and a 7950 3GB fit into this case? if it doesn't could anyone suggest me a case that is good?
  4. Bump
  5. 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?
  6. I'm willing to pay around £45 for the case which is around $70 :)
  7. 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!
  8. Anybody suggest me a case for £45?
  9. This is the cheapest I can suggest that I like.

    Has a maximum height support of 170mm for CPU coolers. The 212 EVO is 159mm, so you have plenty of headroom.
  10. YOu can have this and it's cheaper, my friend is using it but it does not have a fan on the back, you can swap with the front one or buy one.
