Help me with a motherboard?

I was following a build I found and this is what I currently have:

Intel Core i5-4460

EVGA GTX 970

256GB Crucial MX100 SSD

2TB Western Digital Black Hard Drive

750W Corsair Power Supply

APEVIA X-Dreamer 4 Case

But sadly the motherboard (MSI H97 Guard Pro) is apparently discontinued, and I'm not interested in a used one. Does anyone know of a good/better substitute? Thank you for your answers, and I would also like to note that I have not gotten my SSD yet, so I was wondering if there were any better brands that someone might recommend just in case someone has an opinion about it. Thanks again!

You got a gtx 970, a good SSD and HDD, but you chose a 4460. If you have the extra $40 id say get the 4690 for better performance. Also did you look at Asus H97's

I found this motherboard that seems compatible with the 4460, will that be fine for the 4690?
