If I decide to get haswell, I would probably get an MSI. Though if the Z87-OC is really that less expensive than the up7, I'd probably get that.

I voted Gigabyte because from the sound of it the OC orange and black board is actually going to be affordable and I've always wanted to build an orange and black rig

it's it still too early for me to pick any of them.

i will be looking (if at all) for specs that suits my need, not just what looks good, or what everyone else is getting.

i require (in this order) :
an awesome BUS speed
8 dimm slots (to hold 64gb (8x8 ) )
2x x16 pcie slots (CFx or SLi)
more than 6 sata2/3 ports (preferably 8 or more)
on-board RAID
the colour does not matter - it could be putrid pink and have ALL the above feature requirements, and i wouldn't care which mobo camp made it, or how much it costs.
Prepare for the worst. Assume losing. Then... if the opposite occurs... BONUS!

I will go Haswell to replace my current C2D rig: if MSI is cheap enough I will go for that, although that Gigabyte one looks very nice too and, apparently, the price is nice.. :P (will OC it again, so want a nice OC mobo)

Now I'm not even sure if I will go for Haswell, I just read test of 4770k vs 3770k and performance difference are between 3,7%. If that's true I just go for 3930k.
Well we will see what will happened.
