I'm building a system with an Intel i5-4430 cpu and am now trying to purchase a Gigabyte Sniper Z87 chipset Mobo. They are getting sort of hard to find right now. Would a Gigabyte Z97 be a good replacement. I'm a newcomer and don't need any unexpected curves to get the Z97 up and running. It looks like both of these boards have onboard graphics capability which is desirable for me at this point. i know this is a litle vauge, but I'm just rying to keep it as simple as possible. I thought I read somewhere that some BIOS changes would have to be made with the Z97 and this CPU.
