Best Budget Z97 Motherboard

Basically the title.
Here's my build thus far: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/77BzXL

Is this motherboard a good choice? Other than that I think the build is pretty solid for my price range. I would love insight or comments about the entire build if you think I could change some things around!

Thanks for your time!

  1. You have a micro atx board, you can get a fully sized board like the msi z97 pc mate or msi z97 g45 for same price but a full sized one instead, build looks fine but no hdd, I'm assuming you have one already?

    Yes, yes I have a 500gb hard drive, and thank you. Is it worth spending a bit more on a motherboard? I still have some wiggle room in my budget! Thank you.
  3. Also, what would be the benefit in getting a full size board? Just more room for expansion, etc?

    yes, some matx boards may not allow for sli/crossfire, just a single gpu, and you may need a low profile cooler so they don't come in contact with your ram , you can get normal sized boards for the same price as your matx board
