My System Specs

Default

If your getting an Ivy or sandy chip your best with z77 (mainly because they are the most common and have better selection and most up-to-date features)
x79 is for SB-E chips and is over-priced unless you really have too much money or if you really will use a hex core for rendering or the like (and use it allot)

I would go Asus every time if my budget permits.. most reliable and easily the best RMA experience of any board I've tried.. Though I've not actually tried the intels..

Sabertooth would be pick 1 with a good budget, P8Z77V Pro or just V if a bit tighter budget and for budget boards I would go MSI or Asrock (personal preference)
I've had way too many problems with and bad customer service from Gigabyte to ever recommend them or use them again for motherboards..
