Re: First computer build, need help
True, It's hardly more expensive and you don't need to worry about BIOS update.
You see some Z86 motherboards need their BIOS updated before it can take "devil's canyon" CPU's. (4790K and 4690K). Problem is that i BIOS can not be updated without a CPU. So you will have to borrow or buy s CPU it can handle to update the BIOS before you add the 4790K.
Just get a Z97. It will not cost more, and you will be ready for a Broadwell CPU upgrade in the future. (upgrading to the next 5000 series from Intel)
