Money isn't a factor,
I want a quality components.
Intel is the Processor 1150 of choice for sure i5 or i7. If the i7 is a waste of money with the minimal gains between it and the i5 then I don't want an i7.
Motherboards Z87 or Z97 don't need all the bells and whistle of Bluetooth and wireless, I have no plans of ever overclocking. I just want a good quality board with a good on board sound without a lot of issues.
SATA 6Gbps, USB 3.0 is probably standard but if not I prefer as many as I can get at a reasonable price.
PCI Express 3.0 - I don't run SLI so as long as I have 1 running at x16 I should be fine.
I always do a complete new install of the OS to eliminate any possible issue.
I was thinking maybe something along the lines of
ASUS Z97-A LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
5-Way Optimization, M.2 & SATA Express, 5X Protection
