7 series mobo
My pc build has been slow coming. On the bright side, now I can get an Ivy bridge processor. I plan on getting the i5-3570k, but I need to decide on a mobo. I might overclock someday if I get bored, but it's not something I am set on. So that being said, what board should I get? I am pretty keen on getting an ASrock due to the bang for your buck factor. The cheapest z77 is $135 on newegg, the 1 and only z75 is $109, and the H77 is around $100.
I was thinking the Z75 board would be the best fit for me, but I don't know a whole alot about mobo's. Thanks in advance for the input.

If you want to overclock, you need a Z75 or Z77 motherboard. You can find a chart comparing the differences between all the 6 and 7 series chipsets on this page: http://www.anandtech.com/show/5728/intel...nd-biostar

I did see that chart, which made me sound somewhat mobo literate. Is that BIOSTAR any good? That seems like a really good price, plus a $10 mail in rebate. I'm sold. Would you recommend this for a midgrade build?

BIOSTAR has been in the industry for a very long time and are a well known motherboard manufacturer.

I actually recommend those two motherboards as alternatives in the latest version of the Budget Gaming PCs and they are great choices that I have no problem recommending.
