You can get a wireless dongle for around £8 on ebay so I wouldn't pay through the nose for a motherboard that has it.

You said that you didnt want to overclock but the i5 2500k is such a good overclocker and the motherboard selected has a easy overclock function so I would defo do it.

IF you didnt want to overclock at all though then try this:

drops you under the price point you wanted nearly but the other board is better.

have you tried they offer free shipping on alot of the items to Ireland ( i am building a new machine aswell in Ireland :)  ) For price wise i have found that has the best prices and the shipping will only be £12 ish which isnt bad for all the components.
