    Default MSI Z77A G45, AsRock Z77 Extreme 4 or MSI Z68A GD65 (B3) which one to buy?

    Hey guys, I need to know which will better to buy out of these 3 mobos. I read Haswells are going to be LGA 1150. So taking the Z77 won't be future proofing. All 3 mobos are from 15-16.5K price range. Which one has better value for price?

    The GD65 will probably be the best out of the bunch. But cross that out of your list as it's a Z68. I've the G45 while it's a budget board, it can hold ~4.5GHz overclocks on a 2500k so I imagine Ivy would be easier. If you are going for massive overclocks, I'd recommend the Extreme4. If you are looking for an mATX, there's also a Sniper M3 Z77 at 16.5k.

    Actually I was fixed on the Ex 4. But recently people are avoiding it. Saying its too thin and all that. So between Ex4 and GD45 what would be the better choice? If both the Z77 boards are not recommended I will go for Z68-GD65 or Z77 Ex 6.

    I am using Asus z68-v for last 10 months and it's working suprebly with no singel issue at all. Go for a Asus z77 board. Asus is always best for motherboard manufacturing.

    Get either of the Z77. GD65 is great and all but it's already outdated. So no need to bother with that.
