My son and I are building first system and we looking at the Z87 Pro and the Z97 Pro from Asus. We would like opinions as to which one we should purchase. The Z87 would be utilizing an i5-4670k and the Z97 would use the i7-4770k.

Thanks for your assistance from a Noob dad and son.

The 4770K is designed for the Z87, but it will work with the Z97 just fine.

So you could just get the 4770K with a Z87 mobo.
