    my bad I had a brain snap yes it will fit fine. ignore what I said before :oops: I got mixed up with X79
    Also it might help out others by saying what your budget is and what your other components are so we can give you some good advice.

    haha, well just wondering though
    always hard to choose mobo
    for the other, gonna wait for Intel i7 4790, and GTX 780 for graphic, and they all get build-in audio , so will keep my money for audio card then
    and will keep use my Tt 1200 gold power...mm....that's it

    I do agree, it can be hard to choose. Just get the best mobo you can buy for the amount of money you have allocated to spend.

    Tbh I prefer Asus boards just because I know I have fantastic after-sales support where I live and the Asus boards I've had have been truly awesome. That alone is enough to sway me to a particular brand. I haven't noticed any real world benefits for using killer lan over intel (I had both on the one board when I had a Gigabyte G1 Sniper 3). If anything, games were more stable online when I used the intel controller. My infamous CoH2 experience comes to mind.....

    Yes, 7 = GD65. 5 = GD45. 3 = GD43. Each adds on features as price and number goes up, with GAMING 9 being the top-level board. GAMING 5 review will be on our front page really soon.

    MSI Z87-GD65 is a nice gaming MB
    if OP used to have GD65 for your old rig, you may want to try gaming 7 or 9!!!!!

    I guess you can't go wrong with either MSI or ASUS but I'd wait for a couple of review to get out before making a decision.

    All the Z97X are looking very similar. Why not Gigabyte?

    I had bad experience with their RAM service. moreover, the new-gen G1 series looks not impressive....

    it's time to give a try on another brands
