Hi everyone I'm about to build my first gaming rig. You can see it over here: http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/p/3vJyx. I was looking at the Hero from Asus and really liked it for its red and black colour scheme and because it's in my around $200 price range for my motherboard. The only bad thing about it was that it didn't have any wireless networking capabilities on it. So I wanted to see if there were any motherboads that are similar to the hero but have Wi-Fi. Thanks your help will be much appreciated!

These are your options:

If your going with red/black, the Gigabyte board 3rd on the list is your best bet.

Thanks alot! But it looks like the Gigabyte GA-Z87X-UD5 TH is not available at Canada Computers :(. Instead will this Wi-Fi adapter with the Asus Hero be a viable option?

Yup you can use any USB WiFi adapter. You could even get a PCI-E WiFi adapter if you'd like.
