Seems much more reasonable than that ASUS motherboard I wanted so badly :p

Having a micro-atx right now, any motherboard that has more than 2 PCI-E slots of any size is attractive to me lol

Does the Z77 support sandy bridge? It's cheaper and I have 2400s and was seriously considering 2600k or 2700k at the end of the year. Or do you think I should wait till christmas sales for a motherboard as well?

It supports both Sandy and Ivy. They don't make Sandy Bridge CPUS anymore so you might have a hard time finding them in the coming months, plus having a Z77 allows you to upgrade further in a few years. Why not try and purchase an Avermedia streaming card instead?
