Any help will be appreciated, I'm building a gaming PC that can withstand maxed out settings. But I have no knowledge of motherboards, If you can please pick the best mother board out of these two or find a better one that will fit my build, it would be a great help.

If your PC is just for gaming, you really don't need an i7, I'd suggest going with an i5 4690k instead. Both motherboards look fine to me and either one should be just fine for your purposes. Also, are you planning to put in another 970 down the line? If so you should maybe bump up your power supply's wattage a bit, and if not you don't need an sli motherboard (though most atx motherboards are sli capable anyway, so I don't know if that would actually save you any money).

Will do. Also I do plan sometime in the future to purchase another 970, but I cant seem to find one in the same price range that is as good if not better than the one I have, I need it to be quiet

Gpus usually dont get very loud. If you want a quite system get the define r5 case. Also dont mix and match gpus. If you get a gpu and want to do sli you have to get the same gpu or it will not work
