Why not just try newegg or amazon? They have z97's available. Find out the number of USB ports you need and use that as your base. That's what I usually do, also if you need SLI and what not. I think you have a great choice there already. The MAXIMUS series is fantastic, just too expensive for my tastes.

Wouldn't 1 SSD be better than 2? Unless he is raiding them.

Fair enough. How about the RAM. Wouldn't it be better to get 1 set of 16gb rather than 2 sets of 8. More cost effective and better compatability.

Thanks very much guys really do appreciate your time and effort helping enthusiasts like myself :p 

Btw I already have the SSDs and RAM, they're 2 and 4 sticks respectively because they're upgrades rather than original build.

Thanks again!
