In need of an upgrade!!

Hi, my pc is in need of an upgrade and I'm wondering what peoples opinions are on what motherboard to get.

I'm going to be getting a i5 4690K CPU so i'll be needing the Z97 chipset for future overclocking (im not looking to do this straight away) I currently run my PC over a wireless connection so I'd like this to be incorporated into the board as well if possible. I'll also be upgrading to windows 8.1 when i do this upgrade. the parts I have are as follows: GTX550 Ti Sc GPU (i may SLI if i can find another one!) HQ audio is a preference as i like my music too (5.1 surround system) I have a 128GB Crucial SSD and 500GB Seagate HDD an ATX board will be nice as the case will take it and its a bit more flexible for me.

I'm also looking to get 8GB of RAM for this MB as well.

Budget is around £100-150 for the MB and RAM although i may be able to stretch a little further if it really suits

any idea's on a good motherboard out there at the moment will be great as there's a lot to choose from it seems

thanks
