    That is the cheapest motherboard from asus that supports that socket and is overclockable. You would be able to get more options from different brands and intel doesn't make motherboards anymore.

    You could also get the 4790k which release in a couple weeks and will be the same price as the 4770k. (depending if it comes to your country)

    Take your pick. Change the Country in the top right to your own.

    if 4790k and 4770k are the same price then whats the difference. also i am in india and intel boards are still present can you search an tell me if they have a any board for that and also if i dont overclock how much fps or performance i will lose while playing present games like watch dogs or coming games. if i dont wish to overclock(due to budget constraint but i will buy a new one when i get enough bucks) which mobo should i go for
