Win 7 64

I was looking at both of those motherboards just yesterday.
Asrock likes putting the SATA ports at 90 degrees at the edges, don't they?

- The H77 supports RAID 0, 1, 5, and 10. If you don't plan on using RAID this is irrelevant.
- The B75 has more SATA ports. Plan on using a lot of hard drives?
- The H77 has 3 PCIE 3.0/2.0 16x slots, but the B75 only 1 PCIE 3.0 16x slot, and 1 PCIE 2.0 16x slot.

I'd go with the H77, as it has more SATA ports, it takes up less space, the RAM can be O/C'd to 2200MHz in future (if you upgrade your processor), and you can run 3-way CrossfireX. There really isn't a whole lot of difference between them. I do think you should see what others say as well, though, before making a decision.
