Was going to get this build with AsRock Z77 Extreme4 Motherboard + i5 3570k a while ago however now going to get the i5 4670k. What is the best motherboard for its price that's compatible with this build?
Also please give recommendations if you think the build could be better.
Thanks!

Any Z87 based motherboard will do.

64gb is too small for a "C" drive look for 120gb at least.
If you go with a 240gb ssd, can you omit the hard drive?

Sweet,
One problem though, i'd like the motherboard to be more red instead of blue. I like the look of this one ASRock Fatal1ty Z87 Killer however I can't find it for sale in the UK (not for cheaper price like in US)

I'd like the 1 TB hard drive (my current laptop has two 250gb hard drives and are both completely full lol)
What about the SSD that AMD Radeon linked, that is fine?
