From my limited experience (I bought a premade computer and swapped the processor onto a board I bought) the one thing I would recommend very strongly
is making sure the motherboard you buy has a very strong track record. It looks like the one you chose does but I'm just throwing it out there
because I bought a board that had just been released and didn't have any reviews and have come to kind of regret it.
Whatever you do, just follow the pack on this part. Don't risk it with the most crucial part of the build. The motherboard will probably be the part
you'll keep the longest unless you (like me) tend to keep a computer the way it is for many years until it dies or becomes too slow to keep up. You
don't want to depend on the motherboard manufacturer to update faulty BIOS or screwy drivers. It's best if they're good to start with.
