    You may have heard that AMD is better for gaming... about 7 years ago. Since than they've always been second to Intel. They're still good for gaming though.

    Good all-around motherboard. Nothing really special nor bad about it.

    Z87 chipset, ATX form factor and more than enough SATA ports.

    You might want to stick around for a bit. Phanein might pop in and perhaps change a part or so.

    Your build looks about like what I would have suggested. I, of course, am more prone to recommend AMD video cards but that because I'm weird.

    I prefer ~~256gb SSDs because of more storage space but that doesn't fit in your budget.

    If that 6USD over is too much, just ditch the optical drive. Most, if not all, people have a spare lying around anyways and there's most likely no need to get a brand new one. Most of our movies, music and games are downloaded/streamed anyways.
