I'm trying to decide which of these motherboards will work best with the gaming PC I am trying to build. I won't do any overclocking and plan on buying another 660 2GB in the future.

The motherboards I'm looking at are:
ASRock Z77 Extreme4

The specs for the computer are:
Cooler Master HAF 912 Mid-Tower Gaming Case
Intel® Core™ i5-3570K 3.40 GHz 6MB Intel Smart Cache LGA1155
CoolerMaster Hyper 212 Evo Gaming Cooling Fan
2TB (2TBx1) SATA-III 6.0Gb/s 64MB Cache 7200RPM HDD
8GB (4GBx2) DDR3/1600MHz Dual Channel Memory
750 Watts - Corsair CX750 80 Plus Bronze Power Supply
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 2GB
Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium

Also any comments on the build would be appreciated.

I'd go with the ASRock Z77 Extreme4 or the GA-Z77X-UD3H. Pick the one that you prefer as they all are good motherboards. Even though it's not in your plan, all motherboards that you selected will allow you to easily overclock your CPU.
