Do i get a micro motherboard or no
Micro or not is your preference.
Switch the CPU to the i5-4460 and save $50. The h97 only supports up to 1600mhz ram. And the psu isn't the best but switching the CPU gives you more money for a better psu.
how much diff is the 4460 from 4690?
and this ram good? https://pcpartpicker.com/part/kingston-memory-hx316c10fbk28
and what psu would u recomm?
This build is definitely your best option. Outperforms either the 4460 or 4690. Solid parts all around and was able to fit in an SSD boot drive:

It's not the most glitzy board, and it won't overclock (not much, at least), but it'll get the job done for a reasonable price!
You won't notice the diff between 3.5ghz CPU and 3.2ghz both top notch very strong CPUs.
That ram is fine and id reccomend evga-b2-750w or antec 620w or seasonic 620w all are 80+ bronze and semi or full modular
This is good build except for psu. I have a build planned out with a 80+ gold psu 650w, a gtx 970(which is better than the r9 380 in most situations, a 4690k overclockable quad-core cpu (doesn't have to be overclocked), and a great killer motherboard in black and red that will match the great g.skill ram 8gb 2133mhz(xmp profile). Also a better hard drive from Western Digital(caviar blue) and a cpu cooler(Hyper 212 EVO). I kept pretty much everything else the same (case, dvd player). Thanks and have a great building experience!
from the 3 builds that are posted above including mine which 1 is better? and is mine decent
