    I'd recommend the Maximus Viii Extreme if price is not an issue. This will be a board for both gaming and for overclocking for gaming performance. Maximus Viii hero if you don't want to do too much overclocking...just bump CPU performance.

    This for up to SLI GPUs. If you wanted to run multiple GPUs then maybe X99 but gaming sweet spot is SLI not tri or quad.

    Hard to beat a G-Sync monitor like the ROG swift

    Good range mentioned here http://www.144hzmonitors.com/gaming-...-october-2015/

    4K perfectly doable now with a couple of high end cards like 980Tis

    The Maximus VIII Extreme hands down. The best ROG gaming motherboard in terms of overclocking capability and gaming features.

    Chino - How would you compare your RVE to this (M8E) board?

    I would go with the Maximus 8 Extreme as well. If you are not getting it right away you can look at the Assembly edition that more professional audio components and a 10gb Ethernet card. They also just announced an version of the Hero with Wi-Fi. The Hero Alpha.

    Both are awesome motherboards but a year separates them. So the Maximus VIII Extreme comes with a lot of updated features like SupremeFX 2015, U.2 connector, USB 3.1 ports, OC Panel II, etc... But I think what users would love the most is that ROG motherboards for this generation are finally getting the 5 Way Optimization that used to only be on the Deluxe motherboards. In terms of stability, performance and overclocking experience, both the R5E and M8E are on par.
