First of all, H61 boards are so 2012 now. A B75 board gives you much more ( usb3.0 and sata3.0 ports ) just a small increase in price.

As for B75m-dgs vs B75ma-e33 , I'd take the MSI E33 one. Quality of entry MSI boards has been increasing in recent years, while Asrock's Doggy stly... I meant DGS boards are known to have below average build quality. Plus the MSI board gets you a PCI slot.

Hey again,

I just read somewhere that the B75 does not support memory with 1600 mhz which my ram is. Is this true, and should i buy a Z77 motherboard instead of a B75?

All B75 boards support 1600mhz RAM.

Since you already got a decent cooler ( hyper 212 evo ), it won't be bad to take a Z77 in case you want to swap for a i5 3570k to OC later. A Z75 board would do, too.
