Z87 Motherboard for i5 4670k

Hi.

I am in the process of building my new gaming rig and the only thing I am unsure of is the mobo.

PC:
i5 4670k
R9 280x Toxic
2x4GB RAM (1600 or 1866)
Corsair TX750W PSU
Not sure if else is important.

Now for the mobo wishes:
In the future I plan on buying an additional r9 280x to run them in crossfire.
I will be overclocking the CPU, 4,6Ghz seems something I would look up to.
I plan on paying around 110-120$.

Brand-wise, my head is blank. They each have their own features, but I don't even know if I am gonna be using them.

Now, as far as I know, cheap motherboards don't differ a lot to their pricier counterparts, they only lack some features. What features could convince me to further invest in a mobo, like 50$ more?

Thanks for your help ^^!

  1. Look at the Asus Z87-A, for a entry Z87 this is a great mobo, and you'll want a Z87 for your K CPU

    For the same price I could also get the MSi G43 or a Gigabyte z87x-d3h. Or is the asus still better?

    Oh and what's the main difference between the ASUS Z87-k and Z87-a Motherboards? Just for comparison ^^
