Motherboard decision

Hello there, it is build time again.

I think I want the new Ivy Bridge i5 3750K, but what to put it in? I was debating whether or not the MSI Z77 GD65 would be worth the money but for £30 less you lose a pci-e slot (Which I wont really be using) on the GD55...

What do you guys recommend for a Z77 motherboard? (Does not have to be MSI of course)

My budget is about £450-500 as I already have a case, a GPU to use, hard drives etc.
I am buying a mobo, cpu, RAM, PSU and possibly a disc drive as all of mine are PATA! Gone are those times...

Hi Klaus5000

A list of parts for you @ http://pcpartpicker.com/uk/p/9k9w

Do you have a full retail Windows 7 disk?
I have included the OS disk so if you have one already that is not installed on another PC it will reduce the cost of my list to under £400.
