Default Re: My Gaming Rig

The Intel Core i5 4690 is part the new Haswell Refresh that came out not to long ago. It's designed to go with a Z97 motherboard, however some Z87 motherboards will get their bios updated to support the new Haswell Refresh, however not all of them will.

I would just do the safe thing and go with a Z97 motherboard. Let me link some good ones.

Newer version of your current choice. ASRock Z97 Pro4 LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard - Newegg.com

If you want to go with a better brand than Asrock such as Asus you can, it just might cost a little more.

ASUS Z97-A LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard - Newegg.com

I myself would go with the Asus board, but that's just my opinion.
