    Default Gigabyte Z77X-D3H or ASRock Extreme 4

    I am going to buy Intel Core i7-3770. But I am stuck with deciding the mobo. Need a mobo to crossfire 2x7770. Currently I have got 2 options--------

    1. Gigabyte Z77X-D3H -13,700/=

    2. ASRock Z77 Extreme4 - 14,500/=

    Plz help me decide. And also are these fair prices?
    TIA

    2x7770hd such a bad idea.....very bad idea.
    Rather sell the 7770hd if u have one and go for 7850hd.
    If u buy z77 series motherboard buy a 'k' cpu i mean 2500k or 2600k or 37770k or 3570k cpu which are unlocked. And buy a aftermarket cooler like coolarmaster hyper evo at 3k at binary logic.

    low tier card's multi gpu setup (e.g. sli or crossfire) = bad idea + amd radeons' crossfire = another worse idea + getting a oc'able motherboard for non oc'able cpu = worst idea ever . but it looks like you want multi card setup and you won't find any other than z77 in BD for sure. but you should try and search at idb or multiplan for h67/b75 with cf/sli compatible. but i ain't sure. so if z77 is your only choice then why 3770? ? ? get a 2500k and utilize z77's oc'ability.

    coz the 2nd pcie on all h77 board runs @ x4 and version is 2.0 too. I found that these 2 boards have 2 pcie3.0 slots running @ x8. and maximum review i read about 7770CF are +ve. they get almost 100% scaling which lead to a greater performance than 7850 without costing an arm and a leg.

    go to binary logic..u'll find k series processors..and is gigabyte z77X available?? i think you are talking about z77 D3H which is around 11k @ ryan's...which isnt a bad...if you go for k series processor..you might want to get that asrock extreme4 (more features, better power phase etc etc)... its better if you compare it to the mentioned gigabyte one..but if you go for any partially locked processor there's no point in wasting money in high/mid end motherboard and finally 7770x2 wont give you much of a performance boost...and many say that driver support for crossfire isnt that great (doubtful)..also remember you need a good psu for CF/SLI...there's some psu which can handle single card with ease but when it comes to multiple cards they suck really bad...even if the power requirement isnt that great (eg CM GX PSU's)..so think before you buy

    yes, binary logic has the k version. but the price they asked is 33k. that's 6k higher than the non-k ...i don't think i can increase my cpu budget to that much. but thx anyway.
    so i think extreme4 is the one for me. though a little steep but it can oc the non-k cpu to a fair degree and has some good xtra features.
    and i will give a second thought on 7770CF though i have a XFX 650W.

    that PSU is good...if you want to do some gaming i7 will be overkill...you can go for i5 3450< 3550< 2500K...and many of the z77 boards can Overclock non-k cpu..i have seen people OC an i5 3550 to 4.1 GHz with MSI z77 G43...i have OCed my 3550 to 3.9 GHz...and i have ASrock z77 ex4
