Oh yeah!! Flipkart has listed few Z77 boards (all of them Asus) on their website. Do note that Intel’s NDA is still up and ordering hasn’t started yet
The following boards that are up are:
Strangely (well…for few folks anyway) already given a 5-star rating to Asus Sabertooth Z77 already before the board is available and NDA being lifted up.
In any case, at the time of writing only 1 board has the price mentioned: ASUS P8Z77-M PRO Motherboard priced at Rs. 12,190/-. I wouldn’t consider it 100% yet but it gives a rough idea of the pricing.
Thanks to Moksh Mridul for pointing it out and a good find! Cheers.

Looks like Flipkart’s ratings should be taken a pinch of salt because any bloke can say anything he wants. A fanboy can praise his favourite brand- or bash up other brands (And why not company’s PR.. should they feel the need to). It’s sad that there’s no proper system for this and rumour has it (yeah…it is not really a rumour if you search around there have been reports from people who said it happened) that Flipkart deletes reviews/ratings of those who give them a bad rating. So.. take these ratings with some caution. I am not saying all are liars and even idiots who don’t know what the word “review” means and what’s the point of ratings- and worse people who don’t know how to use something- but we have excellent collection of trolls and fanboys who just love to make people’s lives a little more… annoying.
There have been people who made orders from Flipkart with ridiculously low pricing, stating that its stocks are “out of stock” and some other reason. Regardless, if Flipkart doesn’t learn how to deal with PC Hardware retail, it is going to damage their reputation pretty badly.
