Default Re: Motherboard selection help

I went through the same issue with the Z87 when I got it, the extra options are tempting and I ended up going for the Z87 plus on sale for almost the same price as the Z87-A one question you need to ask is what you plan to use it for, see what the differences are and decide if there options you'll actually use, A friend of mine built the same system as I did but he went with the Asus compatition series (the black and red boards, I forgot what there called) well anyhow he spent a LOT more than I did and he doesn't even use any of the extra option I don't have other than to play with a few of them to see what they do but that novelty wears off. If you don't have any real need for the extra options then I'd go for the Z97-A

New system
NZXT Tempest 410 - I5-4670K - Asus Z87-Plus - SeaSonic SS-750KM3 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular PS
GPU MSI GTX 970 Gaming 4G - CORSAIR Vengeance Pro 16GB 1600 (2x8gig) - SAMSUNG 860 EVO 1-TB -Seagate Barracuda 3-TB

Antec 200 - I7-920 - ASUS P6T - Corsair TX650 it's old but still kicking like a mule
2-EVGA GTX 470 in SLI- ocz vertex 3 SSD 128 gig
Seagate Barracuda 1-TB - OCZ DDR3-1600 12 gigs 3x4
Keeps Me Happy :lol:
