Please let me know what you think. I had a motherboard picked out myself which is this one - http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=MB-269-MS&tool=3 however I'm not sure if its suitable.

Thanks again folks!

ASUS Z97-A for overclocking, but go with something cheaper from MSI or Gigabyte if you're only gaming.

The z97 Gaming 5 is great. Just looking at your build though, you don't need nearly 850W of power. Get a lower wattage unit (like an RM650) and a better case.

The power supply was more of a precaution in case I went for an upgrade in the future that was more power hungry. Do you reckon the z97 will fit inside the corsair 200 case though? I'm currently hovering over the buy button on overclockers here

The PSU is still excessive. Any ATX motherboard will fit in the 200R.
