Which is the best desktop motherboard to pair with an Intel Core i5 3570k? I have about $200 to spend (RS 10000 – RS 130000). I prefer Z77 and X89 chipsets if possible. I would like to be able to use discrete graphics, high-speed SATA and USB 3.0.
Personally, I have a MSI Z77A-G43 Military class Mobo with an i5 3450 and 8Gb of Corsair Vengeance, with a Whopping 3TB HDD and some other just to do slight Temp storage, works like a baby, smooth.
Asus is the best motherboard for your need and I recommend -
Asus P8Z77-M PRO -
It's the best currently available in the market.Z77 series are for high end processors and is made for overclocking purpose which is best for i5-3570k.
Price - Rs. 12932/-
Ask a computer shop owner for accurate price as it changes frequently.
