I'm thinking of getting the MIS gaming 5 mobo BUT I was wondering if I should spend just a bit more and get the Gaming 7 model. What are the improved features and is it worth getting the upgraded version? Also is worth spending about £60 more to get the Asus MAXIMUS VII HERO?

Thanks for your help in advance :)

You should check out the Asus Z97-A, it's a great Mobo and you can save up money for other components

The Gaming 5 is an amazing board. The Z97-A is also very very good. However the gaming 5 motherboad has amazing onboard audio when compared to other boards. It even beats some of the maximus series mobos. As blackbird says, the maximus boards are very very nice. However unless you're going to be doing some extreme overclocking the maximus isnt worth it. For most people, the spectrum almost ends at the gaming 5 or Asus Z97-A (btw, the gaming 7 has almost no real advantages over the gaming 5)
So in other words, the gaming 5 is strongly recommended
