With all do respect to Intel I would not go for an Intel brand MB "that's me".

I highly advice you going with the Z77 chipset on a Gigabyte MB. As to which model from Gigabyte it all depends on your budget. If the mentioned board is beyond your budget http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128545 GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UD5H ATX Intel Motherboard - Newegg.com then go with the Asrock board http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157293 ASRock Z77 Extreme4 ATX Intel Motherboard - Newegg.com

One thing for sure don't go for the 67 chipset

Man Intel is not stupid. If they make boards that have the features of a Gigabyte UD5 or the EVGA Classified then No one & I mean No one will go for these brands anymore. They are capable of doing much more better boards then the ones that are currently on the market. Yet, they leave it to companies like Gigabyte, Asrock, etc...

It's like leaving them a piece of the pie while they concentrate on other things.

Hi Dan !

The U.S. has a law on misleading information to customers?
