Need a good motherboard for a gaming PC!

So im building a gaming PC but im new to them, I dont really know what I'm looking for
One of the motherboards i've found is
http://www.amazon.co.uk/MSI-Z87-GD65-GAMING-Motherboard-USB3-0-LGA1150/dp/B00CXOMII8#productDetails
But i've heard gigabyte motherboards PCI 3.0 are also great
All help is appreciated.

  1. Can I have your full planned build's specs ? I could improve on that with the same budget.
  2. That board would be a great gaming board. I just stay away from MSI boards. They are more problematic than others, IMO. Asus, Gigabyte and asrock are about the most reliable and with Gigabyte I'll give the advantage.
  3. Could you link some of the ones you think are good for gaming please?

    Asus Maximus VI Hero C2 Motherboard (Socket 1150, Intel Z87, DDR3, S-ATA 600, ATX, 2 x PCI Express 3.0 x16, Intel I217V 1x Gigabit LAN Controller)
  5. Is there anything similar but cheaper as im already spending quite alot on this build :/
  6. Here's just a few:

  7. Oopps. Link too long. This is a link to many boards. The previous link was to five boards, compared.

    The GD65 is the better performance board , and it overclocks better because of the higher power phases.
