I found MSI Z97 Gaming 5 to be the perfect balance between features and price. It has everything you need plus a few extra without the "premium" pricetag. Also finally a board without too much white shit on it, nice matte black finish.

Now the only thing I dislike about the MSI z97-g55 sli is the dark brown pcb, would have been nicer if it was black.
