This is a pretty good deal on a quality Z97 Micro ATX motherboard. Price is $95-$20 rebate at Newegg. I purchased this motherboard about a month ago to convert my rig to micro atx and had no problems reaching the max stable overclock of my 4790K. Great little board.

Thank you for sharing.

I'm assisting a friend in building a ~$800 gaming computer, with a GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card. Any thoughts on which i5 processor would go well with this motherboard? (I think i7 would be out of the budget, but I'm kind of out of touch with building gaming rigs.)

Thank you,

This being a Z97 motherboard, you will want to go with an overclocking (K) processor to use it to its full potential. That pretty much leaves you with the 4670K or the 4690K for the i5 line. The 4690K being the newer variant with better thermal material and slightly higher stock clock speed.

It really just depends on what deals you can find. I got my i7 4790K for $245 about 8 months ago, but doing a quick search online seems to show that the i5 4690K is going for about that price even now.

For gaming you will see little to no improvement going with an i7 over an i5 (hyperthreading does not benefit almost all games). You will want a K variant to at least OC and match the clockspeed of the i7 on the i5. From there on, it's all about the price. At a $100 difference on average, going i5 is a no brainer for gaming.

I'm surprised I haven't seen more combo deals lately as I got an i5-4690K/mobo combo with a $100 discount almost 2 years ago.
