Z77 Mobo Roundup II: EVGA, ASRock, Gigabyte, Zotac We've already covered all of the juicy details of Intel’s Z77 chipset and put a few motherboards through their paces, but there are so many manufacturers with killer boards available based on the chipset, that it’d be a crime if we didn’t round up another stack of them for you.

This round of Z77 mainboards consists of entries from ASRock, EVGA, Gigabyte, and Zotac, more specifically the ASRock Fatal1ty Z77 Professional, EVGA Z77 FTW, Gigabyte Z77X-UD3H, and Zotac Z77-ITX WiFi...

Building a comp for a friend. They probably will not ever take the cover off of the case unless something goes wrong with it. They play a few games and such. They are not really up on computer stuff but like to play games. Any thoughts, pros, cons to the Gigabyte for this sort of a build?

It seems alot of the people I know for the z77 is going with EVGA. I got nothing aginst ASrock or Zotac but I haven't used their board before. As for gigabyte ive read alot of people recommend them but after using one of their boards (it was an AMD board so it may not apply since I personally have an ASUS anyways) I just lost some faith in gigabyte for the fact of just getting Windows to recognize a RAID I setup though the board. 

I can think of about 4 guys I know currently that run EVGA z77 boards and everyone of them loves it!

My rig - I7-4770K, ASUS Z87-A Mobo, 16 GB Corsair Ram, AMD 7990 GPU, CoolIT AiO Cooler, NZXT H630
