  1. They are both the same specs and price. Asus has a better rep for quality and reliability. So I'd go with the Asus.

    Well the other supports Satta express.
  3. I've used gigabyte in my last 3 builds. Can't fault them, great boards.

    So do you think this one will be a good buy for my i5-4690?

    At the end of the day it's just a piece of PCB and you are not likely to keep it for more than 3 years.
    Pick the features that you need and price you want to pay.
    Board you listed is H97 and won't support overclocking if you have "K" CPU.

    Nope, this is my first buld and i will not OC anything. It is just a i5-4690. Oh and i will not need to do a BIOS flash up update? I think i can just plug and play pretty much
