if you dont plan on overclocking use a 4670(not k) i5 instead.use the cheapest motherboard you can.

no point getting a expensive mobo if not overclocking or planning to add gpus later.

The money you're spending on overclocking the CPU, including the expensive motherboard, would be better spent toward a better graphics card (r9 280 or 280x), either now or a few years down the road. You can use the CPU cooler (the CPU's metal heat sink and the fan on it are collectively called the "CPU cooler") that comes with your processor.

Motherboards just need to have all solid capacitors (not "solid CPU capacitor") and be made by non-rando brands, like ASUS, MSI, Gigabyte, and ASRock.

Sometimes WiFi is integrated into the motherboard so the WiFi daughter card may be unnecessary if you get a different motherboard.

There's really no game out there for the forseable future that benefits from OCing current cpu's, since they r already so fast. (I realize someone out there will jump and say Skyrim when running 100 mods all at once, but idk that's a very minority of gamers and that still requires a fast gpu).

GPU needs to be the biggest portion of your budget if your a gamer.

what would you recommend for a motherboard? Like this http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/part/msi-motherboard-h81mp33?

I dont think the 280s in my budget. I want to lower it to as close as 1100 as i can.
