I was looking to change to a z97 motherboard, but I was asking whether all of the above (z97 mobo) would fit a d work or if there was a website where I could check?
Many thanks

use this website http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/ and put all your parts in and then post here, it'll flag you when it detects any sort of incompatibilities, you'll also get the cheapest rate you can get on the internet. Also, you can change what country you're in at the top right. Really nice website for this sort of stuff. Also makes us helping you a little bit easier

Swifty_morgan this was my first build so I didn't want to buy all the parts and they either would take work to get her but also not fit in the case

what do you think of this? you can get a 290x instead of a 290 but that would mean getting a cheaper motherboard, perhaps this one https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/msi-motherboard-z97pcm... its quite nice and gets the job done as well, if you have windows 7, then you probably need an ssd, this one is not the best but it gets the job done
