Keep in mind that I will not be overclocking:
Seems like a really solid build you should be able to play most games at ultra.
why the gaming MB if your not OC or using dual SLI??..seems like your cutting things like cpu cooling, lower wattage psu, locked CPU.. If I were you I would get a less expensive MB as to me it just don't fit the rest of the system.
Looks pretty solid but be aware. With a z87 board you'll require a BIOS update to make it compatible with all Haswell processors, such as yours. If you'd rather just not, you can get a z97 board instead.
Thanks I'll look into the z97 boards. How much of a pain in the *** would flashing the bios be?
its nothing like it use to be, you can just go to the manufacture website and download the flash update. It will auto update the bios for you and restart.
I still stand with my comment as you are not going to be using any of the features that puts that board over $100, you can save yourself $50 and get a board that better fits your setup. that board wont even offer dual SLI
This board was cheaper because it doesn't offer sli which isn't a problem. Not worth sending 100 on a mobo because I will not be overclocking?
look at it like this the board offers crossfire..you pay for and wont use, the board is unlocked, you pay for and wont use, the board is designed for Radeon Cards you have a Nvidia. Here is a cheaper board that actually better fits your system..as well as will provide dual SLI if you ever so happen to want it.
