I am looking for a good motherboard and processor for my new gaming computer I am building. I already have a graphics card and ram which I will link. I have a good budget so recommend anything that is worth the money. Thanks.
My ram: 2x http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
My video card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Newest generation from Intel. An i5 processor will work brilliantly in games and there will be absolutely no bottleneck of those two 660s:

You can overclock with this CPU, so both of these coolers will work great. Go for whichever is in your budget:

This motherboard is one of the popular models in the Z87 line. Has great features at a great price:

If want a mechanical hard drive, either of these are great:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... - 2 year warranty
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... - 5 year warranty

If you want an SSD (blisteringly fast):

Just seen the PSU update. Will definitely need an upgrade to power 2 660s plus overclocking. This is a good one at a good price:

Also supports Haswell's C6 and C7 sleep states, so will save you some money on your electricity bills too! :D
