Need help choosing a mobo to complete my build

My PC will mainly be used for gaming at 1080p. I plan on picking up a cooler and overclocking my CPU down the road. In the future the most I'll ever do is 2-way SLI.

CPU: i5 4690k

GPU: MSI Geforce GTX 770 2GB Twin Frozr OC

RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1600 Mhz

HDD: WD 1 TB 7200 RPM 3.5-inch Desktop Hard Drive

Cooler: Stock

PSU: Corsair CX 600 Watt ATX 80+ Bronze

Case: Fractal Design Define R4

So the three motherboards I've been looking at are the MSI Z97 Gaming 3, ASUS Z97-K ATX and the ASROCK Z97X Killer ATX. All 3 are very closely priced and I'm not really sure about the difference between them.

Asus Z97-K is your best option. Very reliable and great customer service.
