If you arent going to overclock, buy a cheaper motherboard.
If you arent going to overclock, build a haswell pc, it is more efficient
in games at stock clocks. A 4440 Haswell will perform as well as your cpu and it is cheaper. A h87-plus motherboard will do nicely.

Upgrade to a i5-4670k. It's not much more money and is a lot better. Try a Z87 Mobo or an Asus Maximus if you want to overclock. Best of luck. Also, give the Thor V2 Case a looksie. I got mine and it's a beauty!
