It's has a better audio chip, network card, more power phases for overclocking, and more USB 3 ports on the 4.
as far as Gaia i have read some good and bad reviews on it so i would just stick with 212 evo.

Since you have a bit money left over from this build I recommend that instead of a gtx 770 go with a 780 it is better by a substantial amount. reference video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CQAbBU43mpo

i'd say go with a 290 now that the prices are cheaper. similar to the 780 but much better bang for the buck.

I agree, go with the 290 and get an after-market cooler.
