    Looking at the above motherboard for a 4670k, 8GB, GTX 970. Is this a wise choice or is there something better? Won't be overclocking anything.

    Cheers

    If you're not overclocking you should probably just buy the board with features (number of slots/usb ports/etc) that suit your needs, that board looks ok for the money.

    4690 plus a b85 or h97 motherboard will save you money.

    It will be fine if you don't need xfire and plan on having one card only as it cant do 8x 8x sli/xfire, only thing I'd say is asus are not good with rma and warranty.

    Remember all the fancy phases and stuff like that doesn't matter on z97 the voltage regulation is in the cpu.

    On skylake power phases on the board etc matter again.

    Thanks for the replies. Ended up getting a Gigabyte Z97P-D3 for just over £50. Working perfectly so far
