I've decided to build my desktop finally. However, I will be doing so by purchasing a part or two per pay-check.

I have a case, ssd, monitor, mouse, and a copy of windows 8.

The next part I am looking at is a motherboard.

That's one I've looked at, any advice would be awesome.

Awesome, looks like plenty of fun ahead!

It seems that your going with an Intel i5/i7 Haswell and a single GPU setup. The chipset on this motherboard is missing a few features that I'm unsure if you were wanting, like SRT and RAID. A simple comparison on chipsets can be viewed here.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LGA_1150 One with a little more Detail http://www.pugetsystems.com/labs/articles/Z87-H87-H81-Q87-Q85-B85-What-is-the-difference-473/ And one with a Bunch of information http://www.anandtech.com/show/6989/intel-z87-motherboard-review-with-haswell-gigabyte-msi-asrock-and-asus-at-200

If you plan on purchasing a "K" SKU CPU and plan on overclocking, than you'll want to grab a Z87 Chipset Motherboard Such as this (up to maybe 4.5Ghz)

If you don't plan on overclocking, depending on what you're looking for in a board, (including color) This is another good one,
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128603 -Some of THE BEST VRM on a motherboard, digital and stable...

They each have their pros and cons. There are many boards to chose from but those were some that caught my eye while staying within the same pricing as the board originally posted.

There may be better values that are out there, those were just a few found in a couple of minutes. The Gigabyte board "GA-H87-D3H" has IR3550 Power Stages for the VRM and control voltages digitally. They are AWESOME, but kinda overkill for that board... I just wish they were on the "overclocking" board linked above instead...

*EDIT*

Sorry, I got caught up and left this out after I re-typed everything -The Board you picked out is a good board. If it has all the features you want, it will serve you well, aside from any overclocking. ^_^

Hopefully I was able to give you useful information and didn't repeat stuff you already knew ^_^

If you have any questions or need help with anything, feel free to hit-me-up. I'd be more than happy to help. :D

Pretty much the same board, but with the Z87 chipset which removes the memory speed limitations. Only $115 after the $5 discount using promo code PRSDNTDAY47

I would go for the upgrade since it is only $10 more.

Not a problem. Can't go wrong with an i5 series, I had an i5 960 for the longest time and that chip overclocked pretty well.

Think you can better save your money as buying each month six months later your firsr part will probably be cheaper or a new part better and cheaper

Since you are not getting an i7, I recommend you get a better graphics card than AMD budget one.
Here are some parts I can recommend to you:

Posted Image

Graphics card: (ASUS FTW)
http://www.amazon.co...ywords=asus 770

RAM: (Corsair FTW)
http://www.newegg.co...N82E16820231627
http://www.newegg.co...N82E16820233536

PSU: (Corsair FTW)
This should be just fine: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16817139010
But if you think you might need it, this would be a better investment:
http://www.newegg.co...N82E16817139057

Hard Drive: (Western Digital FTW)
http://www.amazon.co...n digital black

Keyboard:
I cannot recommend one to you as I do not know your Cherry switch preference, so I suggest you go here and pick up one of these to find out which switch is right for you.

Hope this helped, enjoy your PC.

I thought I would share this build with you, it looks pretty cool: http://pcpartpicker....tx-gaming-build
