    Default Motherboard Suggestions

    Hey guys, I need a new board for my sig rig. The Old GD-65 died
    So I've limited options here in BD so I need a bit of help, so could you guys suggest me which would be the best within these?
    Asrock Z77 Extreme6 - 18,000BDT (220USD)
    Asrock Z68 Extreme7 - 27,000BDT (343USD)
    Asrock Z77 Extreme 4 - 14,000BDT
    Gigabyte G1 Sniper 2 - 18,000BDT (220USD)
    ASUS P8Z77-V - 22,000BDT (269.889 USD)
    ASUS Z77 Sabertooth - 25,000BDT (306USD)
    MSI Z77-G45 - 18000BDT (220USD)
    So thats about all my options, so any help on these would be appreciated. I would like to keep the cost reasonable in the same time I can pay extra if the board is worth it. Plans of doing 2-Way SLI but I don't think I'll be doing 4-Way. Yes I do plan on pushing the CPU upto 5 GHz or more as I've done it before on my GD-65. And yes these are overpriced in BD, nothing to do

    Thanks.

    1st of there's nothing called a Z77A GD45(as I'm aware), it's a G45*. Out of those choices, it's either the Extreme4/6 if you want to save a bit and have everything a high end board offers. Or if you want to go über high end, it's the Sabertooth/Extreme7, bt I'd avoid the Z68 chipset now since Z77 is widely available and is newer.

    Btw where did you find the G1 Sniper 2, it's a Z68 right? Is it really available at 18k, or just listed on Smart's website?

    Seen them at IDB and listed on Smarts site too. Yes Its a Z68. I would want to save a bit because I'll need a new power supply too. But if its worth the extra dough I might want to get them as I'd like to stick to this board for atleast a year. Screwed up the old PSU. And most MSI boards are having BIOS issues not to mention poor build quality (In my case). The Extreme6 Lacks a PLX chip which the Extreme7 offers.

    What? I searched the whole of IDB, but never saw a G1 Sniper 2 and at 18k it's almost a steal!

    Btw the UEFI issues on the Z77 MSI boards are more or less solved(the most affected was the Z77A GD65) but it's not available. I didn't find any quality issues with MSI atleast from my experience with the GD80/G45, though the latter is a budget board and shouldn't be compared. Do you really need a PLX chip, does 8x not suffice?

    The Extreme7 will be outdated* and is replaced with its Z77 counterpart. If I were you I'd grab the Extreme6 or the G1 if you want to get a good overclock on that 2500k. The Sniper uses some really highend components and is compared to Asus ROG lineup for the most but it's a Z68 and I'm not sure if Gigabyte was generous enough to polish their 3D UEFI/Bios on their previous flagship.

    I don't need it all that much but yeah it would be nice to have one.
    Though thanks for the advice. I'll be picking up one tomorrow so lets see if the Sniper is still there.

    If I can though, I would love to grab the P8Z77-V if the price is lowered a bit. So Thats in my option list too so is the Extreme6.
