I'm building my own gaming PC soon and I'd like to know which motherboard to get. I will probably be doing some overclocking and I want something that's gonna last (also I have no idea which if either have on board WiFi.) If you suggest something else however I have about $250 to spend on it and would like something black and red, i5 compatible, z87, and again preferably WiFi on board.
I'm getting an i5 4670k
16GB Corsair Vengence RAM (also is 16GB really overkill or worth the extra price just to futureproof a little)
and a GTX 770, just the regular card none of the special "editions" or anything
Thanks!

I personally like the Hero, really good for overclocking, and also packs a lot of features, but the GD-65 is also great.
I think that 16GB is overkill, you should get just 8GB and use the money to buy an SSD if you haven't got one, for example. I also recommend you to buy a "special edition" 770, because the price is around the same and it comes with very good cooling and features that the normal doesn't, like overclocking programs and stuff. Take a look at the MSI version, for example: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/msi-video-card-n770tf2gd5o...

Is that the card you'd suggest and does the Hero come with on board WiFi or will I have to get some adapter?

Yes, that's the card I suggest, it's really really good, and no, the Hero doesn't have on board WiFi, you'll need to buy an adapter, but the GD-65 doesn't aswell, if I'm not wrong
