Any good Motherboards with same or better performance for same $?

Hello, (asking this for a friend) just bought all new computer parts except for motherboard

 

Specs: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/HLvVjX

 

We've been looking to buy the Asus Maximus Vii Hero but it's been out of stock for months now.

 

Just wanna see if anyone has any suggestions on any other Motherboards that are at same or better performance as the Hero and also 

compatible with all the other parts. Price will also be something to be accounted for, not too expensive like $400 but something reasonable I guess

 

 

EDIT:

 

 Would also like suggestions for motherboards with wi-fi support, with same performance and yadda-yadda up there ^^^

just get a more normal board like the MSI Z97-GAMING 5 :)

only about 150 dollars

 

50 dollars for the asus board gets you:

1 extra usb 2.0 port

intel NIC instead of a killer NIC

3 way sli instead of 2 way (you won't need 3 way SLI with Z97)

4 fan headers instead of 3
