You have a socket 1155 CPU and that motherboard is a socket 1150. They will not work together.

No it's not and that is because that motherboard doesn't support your CPU. The G1.Sniper B5 has a 1150 socket which supports Intel's newest generation.

And since you are on a tight budget, you don't need to buy a $200+ motherboard. You could save some money and get an ASRock Extreme4 or Asus P8Z77-V. Good motherboards for overclocking.

It's OK. If you plan on some serious overclocking, no. It only has a 4+1 power phase design which will cause problems for high CPU clocks.

If you are going for looks, stop. Get functionality first.
