I'm finding for good MoBos that are for gaming (no overclocking will be done.)

Sheesh, this was short.

the 4690 is cheaper than the 4690K, at the same architecture, clock, and core speed

but remember the 4690 is clocked at 3.5 and turbos to 3.9 while the 4690K can be easily overclocked to 4.7...... so there's a reason for it being more expensive!

I agree!! but if you check all his saved builds you'll see he picked unlocked chips like the 4690k, so that's the reason I recommended the Z97. The way I see it is if he is going for the better one, why not get the Z97, one thing is today but tomorrow...
