    Hi. Here is three of them. The Motherboard has the latest chipset ( Z97 ) that just came out. You don't need a sound card. I am using a Micro$oft Sidewinder x4 keyboard and it works well for me when gaming. The Mouse is a matter of what feels good to you. I generally use a three button mouse as it suits me just fine. Others like 5 button ones and some have more than that and at least some of the buttons can be programmed for whatever you want. You do not need a sound card. The audio packages today are quite good. https://pcpartpicker.com/user/coastie65/saved/#savedbuild_1027207
  3. I modded the bubbles build, put in a faster GPU, and included a keyboard. Also came in about $4 cheaper. I agree on the comment about mouse made above. I personally use a wireless trackball and have for years.

    I shall name this one Nirvana.
  4. Why AsRock? Why?
  5. Nothing wrong with Intel Asrock boards. I own the P67 extreme4 and the z77 extreme4, both of which were given good reviews by THG. I have had the P67 about 3yrs and the z77 for about 2. The z87 extreme4 was a THG smart buy. I see no reason that the Z97 version isn't going to also be a good board for the $$$.

    For the money it is a very good Board. It is made by ASUS. They were ASUS's boards for the Mass production PC market at one time, but then decided to start build boards for enthusiasts. I have heard of no complaints with those boards.
