Hello, I am making a plan for building a gaming PC. Now, I have most of the hardware settled, but I was thinking that maybe down the road when I am in collage, I might need a better video card. So instead of spending tons of money later to upgrade just the video card, I might as well just get a motherboard that supports SLI so i can just pop in a 2nd cheaper video card.
I am going with an Intel i5-4690k Processor, and GTX 770 video card.
Here is my complete build:

I was hoping for something along the lines of $100 for a micro-ATX mobo, and not much more. If its too much, I'll probably just stick with my now overclockable ASUS h81m-k mobo to save money now.
Thanks!
P.S. if you have any advice for my build go ahead and tell me. It's my first build :)

ASUS just announced there h series motherboards will have overclocking support with their new bios. I think i'll try to see if i can get a z97 when it goes on sale for cheap. Thanks though.

Some H series motherboards have overclocking functions. It is called non-Z overclocking and is due to a loophole in the intel chipset's code. Intel can fix this at any time and it will no longer be available. Also you don't get the same functionality with non-z overclocking and could get a higher more stable OC with a Z series board.
