If you are going to be gaming get a cheaper motherboard and spend more into your graphics card because that is the thing that will allow you to get higher fps. Something like the 970 would be good. You also don't NEED a sound card.

Could probably save on the motherboard unless you want to overclock.. Don't get me wrong, its a nice motherboard

Also, I believe that motherboard already contains a wireless card

Sorry if I've misread (taken from the new egg website), It sounded like it included something

"The next evolution of the mPCIe Combo card gives you even better expandability with the latest standards in connectivity and easy install. You get mini PCI Express 2.0 plus USB 2.0 with an included dual-band 2.4GHz/5GHz Wi-Fi 802.11ac and Bluetooth 4.0 module, powered by ASUS-exclusive Wi-Fi GO! Remote and Wi-Fi Engine, which maximize performance for better experiences. It's an instant upgrade to the fastest wireless right on your desktop. All without having to sacrifice a PCI Express slot!"

By the way Random, the reason that I have a sound card is because we both want it to have speakers

You can overclock with all motherboards that are Z97 but not h97. There are many cheaper alternatives that will be able to do the same things as this.
