Which is best Mobo for an i7 3770K CPU, given that I need UEFI, displayport, USB 3.O only, voice-to-text input. but do not want inbuilt GPU or WiFi, which are in UP7? I will be grateul for all comments.

Both are in most boards nowadays, and both are easily switched off in the bios.
It's in fact handy to have onboard graphics for when you get problems with your current videocard.
Anyway, my system detected the 7970 and disabled the onboard by default.

Looking for the best board is a matter of price/performance.

Get a deluxe board if you can afford it, otherwise, look for available power phases. The more there are, the better it is. Or else if there are less, they should be of high quality.

Stay away from LE boards and the likes if you like to overclock.
If you don't oc, then the Asus P8Z77-V could be viable.

Thanks syidi and flow, for your advice. Budget is not the crtical issue. I need to get it right technically, without wasting money on an overkill, or restricting useage in an entry level mobo. Overclocking is not of interest, but reliability and capacity in audio and video is vip for video conferencing and voice-to text.. I do not think i need Giga Z77 UD7H, nor wi fi. Am i right in thinking that GA UD5H is more reliable than the equivalent Asus or is it simply a matter of personal choice?

Since the iGPU is most likely integrated into the CPU, your system not having one will be hard to get. But you can always disable it.

Both reliable brands, and you don't need a top of the range mobo to overclock Ivybridge.

The UD5H is a nice board.

Thankyou for this comment, but I am not quite sure what is meant. (I am the dummy in the book, PC build for Dummies.) As I understand it, between i7 3770K and Z77X UD5H there are inbuilt video and audio capacity ... Am I wrong in assuming that if the required performance is inadequate (I assume that it will be adequate in both), then I can add cards, bypass the default and thereby improve performance? Thanks again for your input.

Haha, that will be at least a 21 hour flight for me

Anyway, the difference between asus and Gigabyte is small and personal. I'm happy with asus boards for a while now and they have a nice and easy bios.
Having owned several msi boards I was reluctant to get an asus one, but never regretted it.

The GA UD5H is a good board, and on a side note, I have onboard audio disabled and run it through a xfi soundblaster card. It's probably not better, but I like the card and it does what I need. Further more I have always disabled bluetooth if available. Windows will simply not detect it when disabled.
Same for extra sata ports from marvell or the likes, you can disable them or use them. But either way it doesn't really make things better or worse.

Things to look for are available usb ports on the backplate, pci lanes when crossfiring or sli and the afformentioned power phases.
And ofcourse reviews from the board you eventually pick.

Cheers mate.

Thanks Sabbath. Any suggestions regarding best RAM for use with a GA UD5H board?

Since Sandy Bridge, Intel has embedded an IGP into their CPU's. The SB cpu's had an HD3000 series GPU onboard, and the IvyBridge cpu's have an integrated HD4000 series onboard. It can be disabled (for Z68, Z77, etc) in the UEFI just like previous integrated chips that weren't embedded into the CPU.
