    Motherboard?
    Look for any Z87 1150 motherboard that has good reviews. It also depends on your BUDGET but my top choice would likely be Asus, followed by Gigabyte:

    Update:
    You don't require a Z87 version of the motherboard as the i5-4430 isn't overclockable. Here's a slightly cheaper 1150 motherboard: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/gigabyte-motherboard-gah87d3h

    Do NOT get a motherboard unless it has fairly good customer feedback. You can waste a lot of time and money on a motherboard that has issues.

    My top choice currently for medium budget is the Asus I linked above.
  5. ASRock Fatal1ty H87 Performance another option for you!
