Mobo- Newegg.com - MSI A88X-G43 FM2+ / FM2 AMD A88X (Bolton D4) HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

CPU- Newegg.com - AMD Athlon X4 750K Trinity 3.4GHz Socket FM2 100W Quad-Core Desktop Processor - Black Edition AD750KWOHJBOX

GPU- Newegg.com - DIAMOND R7240D32GXOC Radeon R7 240 2GB 128-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 3.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card

RAM- CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Low Profile Desktop Memory Model CML8GX3M2A1600C9 - Newegg.com

CASE- Rosewill R363-M-BK Black Ultra High Gloss Finished MicroATX Computer Case with 400W ATX 2.2 12V Power Supply - Newegg.com (I would remove the PSU from this case as the 12v rails are really low amperage you could get some money back by selling it)

CPU COOLER (not needed unless you are planning on doing overclocking) Newegg.com - Enermax ETS-T40-BK Black 120mm Twister CPU Cooler with TB Apollish Blue LED PWM Fan

Thermalpaste (not needed unless you replace OEM cooler but still recommended for maximum cooling- ARCTIC MX2 Thermal Paste -4gram - Newegg.com

this build was put together with a budget in mind your total including shipping would be $608.91

Well I have a couple comments on your build, the 4770K is overkill and the GPU is under kill. Get the i5 4670K and the Geforce 770 that'll do great for gaming. And you need to buy one at a good price, a good brand to go with is Corsair or Cooler Master. I also suggest you invest in liquid cooling

EVGA GeForce GTX 770 vs GTX 760

My unit was $40 but they're pretty expensive, but it's a very good idea to do it

I have been doing some research. Should I wait as the z97 boards are currently awaiting release...Will this support ddr4? Broadwell does support ddr4? However broadwell is only compatible with 9-series (z97). Any input, sorry this is getting more deep now.

These boards haven't even been released yet and we don't even know when they'll come out.

Yes, this month (april) coming up they will be released...I'm just trying to find out if they will support both the Haswell refresh a day Broadwell chips. another question I want to ask is does the Z97 support the 14nm. everything online seems scattered no clear cut answers even thought the z97 is set to be released this month upcoming.
