However, I am not sure if the current motherboard fits my needs well enough. I want to be able to play games such as Minecraft, Battlefield 3, Battlefield 4, and Skyrim; do some short and/or medium length recordings every once in a while; and do moderate video editing with Sony Vegas Pro sometimes. I do not plan on overclocking nor adding another GPU, although I might throw in an SSD.
I've gotten a lot of recommendations for Gigabyte GA-Z87's, so I think I want to stick with them, but which one should I get for my build and needs? Thanks!
