Its my first time building a PC so im a noob at this.

My current CPU and mobo build is

Intel i5-4670k 3.4GHz
Asus Z87-Pro ATX LGA1150

I feel like im paying more than I should if i dont plan on overclocking. Any suggestions on which motherboard i should get? Or should i change my CPU? I plan on playing BF4 on ultra, 60fps, 1080p

If you're not overclocking, you don't even need a K series CPU. But people tend to buy components that will secure them from future upgrades. If you're willing to save money you should stick with AMDs which are also reliable for very little cash. Good luck!

If you are in low budget better go with FX 8320 or 8350. It has the same preformance in the games as the i5 or i7, also it has 8 cores, which makes him better, because the newer games are starting to use more cores/threads. Also then u can get this MOBO http://www.amazon.com/ASUS-SABERTOOTH-990FX-R2-0-Mother... .

If u "hate" AMD because of some boys that say "AMD is trash" than u can stick with i5 and get this mobo: http://www.amazon.com/MSI-Motherboard-Motherboards-Z87-...
