Both are bad choice as motherboard.
Please tell us your budget for motherboard and the processor you plan to use.

AFAIK, you dont need a Z77 board for overclocking the Graphics Card............ And Asus one is better off anyway, way ahead of Asrock.................
Gig D3H is also good, at that price............

Why So Serious ???
Why not Asus ? Its the best mobo manufacturer out there. Using Z77 chipset for non-K series CPU doesn;t make any sense.
For OCing your GFX card, you dont need a Z77 chipset.

Yep, dont get a z series board for a non-k proccy....

I think you should go for i5-3570k and the GIGABYITE-d3h board

but i m gonna buy a hd7950 & i need to overclock that one...wht about gigabyte motherboards like Gigabyte GA-Z77MX-D3H or Asus P8Z77-V LX ?
Are they good?

Motherboard isn't related to overclocking the GPU, all you need is a good PSU.
AMong all the motherboards listed by you, Gigabyte GA-Z77MX-D3H seems to be the best one.

Then which chipset i should go with for overclocking graphics card?

It looks like you have some wrong conceptions.
TO overclock graphics card one need a good PSU and that's all.
To overclock processor (unlocked one) one needs certain chipset based motherboard.

If you are not interested in OCing then -

Intel i5 3330 + Asus P8H77-V

If OCing then -

AMD FX 8350 + MSI 990FX-GD65



Go for AMD config at this price point.
