I'm pretty sure the X implies overclocking capabilities of the board, so option 4 is probably unnecessary.

I would choose option 2 or 3. The Z77 chipset is a better option for Ivy Bridge. The differences between the two seem to be to do with on-board audio and the number of ports available. GIGABYTE- I found some useful information and would like to share with you

I recently built a music / gaming machine in one - Went all out, including a Gigabyte sniper board / Corsair 650D case. During the build, I discovered that the sata ports came out sideways from the board, right into the recessed MB area! Luckily, the higher-placed ports were sufficient for my needs and I didn't need to do any drastic mods to the MB!

Another thing I would recommend is getting an aftermarket CPU cooler - the difference in running temps (I hear for Ivy Bridge, especially), compared to the stock cooler, is significant.
