Recently I just ordered i7 4770k haswell, I am not so experienced in selecting motherboard optimal for gaming. Right now I have MSI Z87 Mpower in my mind. Can you recommend me any better under 200$ which will out perform MSI Z87 mpower?

Thanks

I ran into the same problem. I ultimately chose Asus Z87 Pro LGA 1150

That's my choice. Gigabyte boards are awesome.

I have been reading about MSI having this 'killer ethernet' feature which is good for online gaming, how efficient is this?

Also, whats the benefit of having two ethernet ports?
Thanks
