Overkill? (Mobo)

Gaming 5 unless you want an illuminated dragon shield on your motherboard REALLY BAD...they are pretty much the same (same essential features)

You need the permalink to the build, not what's in your search bar. The perma link should be up in the top left corner of the parts section. To the left of the page.


Downloading programs from CNet is not a good idea, as they will commonly include unwanted, and sometimes dangerous bloatware... The more you know.

Not much point in the Gaming 7. The board you have there is already fine, but the Gaming 5 is the one to go for if you want to change it. 

 

EDIT: The link doesn't go to your build. Use the permalink.

 

Sorry its updated now.

Without being able to see anything. most motherboards are overkill. If it has the features you want/need then it's good. If it has more than its overkill. That's not a bad thing though. Sometimes they are built better or match your color scheme.
