Second iteration opinions wanted

Ready to buy today but I'm not really sure about the motherboard. I am not planning on overclocking ever so this will work, yes?

All of the i3 builds have Micro ATX recommendations but is a full size an advantage? And the B85 vs H97 or whatever I'm not really sure what I'm doing.

Thanks!

Just picked up the Crucial 240GB SSD with Masterpass discount for $67, should be enough space for a while instead of the 1TB HD.
