Some small additions for my pc setup:
1M Green led strip with a 50cm cable that plugs into USB
And a custom braided&Coiled usb cable for my keyboard (the colours are bit off since my room isn't really optimal place to take pictures)
Both products were ordered and custom made by http://pexonpcs.co.uk/
Also station as a whole with specs and everything http://imgur.com/a/WKEO8

What's the difference between a basic z97 mobo and some of the more high end ones?
The basic motherboard is supposed to be a weaker overclocker usually, typically requiring higher voltage and the likes, and as you go higher-end it's supposed to scale. That said, once you're somewhere in the middle of the pack any gains have pretty much vanished usually.
Beyond that it's mostly feature based. There's a point where they drop off much of the legacy features, and as you go up in price you start seeing M.2, the occasional PLX chip (for giving more than two cards in 16x slots enough PCIe lanes), Wifi, gimmicks like the plastic cover on the Sabertooth, the (rather unnecessary but cool looking) metal backplate on the Maximus VII, etc.
That said, decide what you want from the board. You'll probably find boards fulfilling your needs in the middle of the pack.
Which is good for the consumer, at least short-term.
So I am going to be building a new PC. Preferably for Gaming and Streaming, minor editing for YT vids. I have a few things already like SSDs, HDD, PSU. I do have a case but its pretty huge and bulky so thats why I added a new one here. I would love some input from you guys
Thank god this game isn't just for Rym, we'd have a pretty shitty time - Me

A quick question, can you overclock a locked CPU via your motherboard, or is it strictly the unlocked ones?

Storage, case and other prep.s are from past build.
currently running pretty smooth - we'll see what happens over the next week.
I'm thinking storage will be next upgrade, then case - hopefully then CPU in a year or so.
let me know what you think of that upgrade series.

It's just a game.
