Best Z87 Motherboard for my gaming/programming build? (Haswell)

I've managed to make a decision on most of the parts for my upcoming build but am completely undecided on which board would suit my build.

Current component picks:
- Intel Core i5-4670K

- Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO (I do plan to overclock)

- Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory

- Samsung 840 EVO 120GB 2.5" Solid State Disk

- GeForce GTX 770 2GB Video Card

- Zalman Z12 Plus ATX Mid Tower Case

- Corsair CX 600W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply

I have had a look at many motherboards such as:
Gigabyte GA-Z87X-UD4H ~£135

Gigabyte GA-Z87X-D3H ~ £100

MSI Z87-G45 ~ £110

ASRock Z87 Extreme4 ~ £115

Gigabyte G1.Sniper Z87 ~ £110

ASUS Z87-A and -PLUS ~ £112

I want to spend around £100-135 on a board. Could anyone please point out the best board (from this list or a different one) for my build?

Thanks :)

  1. Looks like a nice build,

    I just built an i5-4670k for my brother last night.
    We used the Gigabyte z87m-d3h

    This is a micro atx version board, but it seems like a very high quality motherboard.
    Installation was a breeze, even with a massive cooler master hypo 212 cooler. There were no clearance issues with the ram or video card using this micro atx board and an old gtx 460 video card.
    I would go for the best price on an asus or gigabyte z87. They are usually both great quality boards. Good luck with the build!
  2. The Gigabyte G1.Sniper Z87 is probably the best value for money
    The Gigabyte GA-Z87X-UD4H is also good but a bit too pricey

    I would go with the Gigabyte G1.Sniper Z87
