http://pcpartpicker.com/user/xavi/saved/2pdP Don't intend on overclocking.

ASRock Z87 Pro3

MSI Z87-G41 PC Mate

Gigabyte GA-H87N-WIFI

I want to replace the current motherboard on the list to save $$

Just a quick glance over your list and I would say if you want to save cash swap that gtx 680 for an HD 7970. Better/equal performance for 70-80$ cheaper.

I've actually been contemplating that decision myself. However, the 680 has been growing on me, the more research I've done

Well if your really set on the GTX 680, at least get the GTX 770 which is essentially the same price but a bit quicker.

As per the motherboard price, do you plan on going SLI at some point?

... unless there is bottlenecking going on. I'm new to PC's.

Does anyone else have any recommendations or should I stick with the Z87A?

If your not overclocking you could go with this one. http://pcpartpicker.com/part/msi-motherboard-h87g43

Will there be botlenecking from your mobo with this http://pcpartpicker.com/part/gigabyte-video-card-gvn770oc2gd

Shouldn't be any. the PCIE 3.0 at 16x is the slot for the GPU. Any mobo with that shouldn't slow the GPU down any. The different between the H87 and Z87 chipset is (generally): no SLI, no overclocking, and 1600 RAM or less. But with a single GPU and no overclock, that H87 mobo should perform the same as a Z87, I believe.

I ask because this GPU is advertised as the overclocked version.

That motherboard can handle any Graphic card.

So This MOBO http://pcpartpicker.com/part/msi-motherboard-h87g43 will work with this Gpu http://pcpartpicker.com/part/gigabyte-video-card-gvn770oc2gd. Sorry for repeating myself but I need to be sure. This card is suppose to be overclocked out the box, so I'm worried it won't be used to its full capabilities with this mobo.
