LGA1155 Motherboard for SLI and Overclocking

Hi,

I'm looking to upgrade my current motherboard for SLI and OC cause my current one does not support SLI. I'm looking at the two following boards since they're the only ones available that's new.
1. MSI Z68A-GD80 (G3) [$315]
2. ASRock Z77 Extreme4 [$250]

Which motherboard will be better?

at the moment I have:
ASRock B75M-R2
2 x 8GB RAM Corsair DDR3-1333
Intel i7-3770 (LGA1155) @3.40 GHz
eVGA GTX980 SC ACX2.0
Asus Xonar DX 7.1 PCIe x 1
eVGA 850W G2 80+ Gold PSU

Thanks!

    Both motherboards will suit your needs so I'd take the ASRock; the chipset is newer and the price is lower.

    However, your current CPU will only allow you to overclock up to its Turbo Boost speed. Anything beyond that is a no-go.
