There is no need for such an expensive motherboard.
Also if you need an OS you'll have to buy that too.

get the MSI Z87-GD45 gaming motherboard and pump the 770 to a 780...

and unless you are in love with that case, there are better casses for around the same price.

if you live near a microcenter you can get a msi Z87-GD45 gaming motherboard for $139 and a i5 4670K for $199. Plus, when you buy a mobo and CPU together at microcenter you get a bundle discount of $40... so a MSI Z87-GD45 and a 4670K would only cost $300, compared to the $460 you are planning on spending on your current choices...

ive also had one board from each one of the major manufactorers; gigabyte, asus, asrock, EVGA and MSI. MSI and AsRock have become my favorites. i love my new MSI Z87-GD65 and 4770K.
