Hi thanks to all of you helpful ppl I think im ready to order my pc however my friend has shown some concern that ive picked out

ASRock Z87M Extreme4 LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

I am also going with Fractal Design Core 1000 FD-CA-CORE-1000-USB3-BL Black Steel MicroATX Mid Tower Computer Case

so the pc ive picked out was suggested by some ppl more exp. than me from this site and I can only afford do order one pc. so am I making a mistake by going with a micro mobo over a full sized one?

Your friend is thinking back 5 years when Matx motherboards generally didnt overclock either at all, or well.
Obviously power demands have dropped significantly since then so
desktop pc's can now come a bit smaller. There is little if any difference in an asus ATX z board, and an Matx z board, except the Matx board is a little smaller and comes without a slot or two. If the chipset fits, as it wer,
It will run the same.
