I plan on upgrading from a amd to a i5-4690k. (I know about time right) I just wanted to know is there big differences on z97 motherboard compared to z87? I will be buy asus just because I have always have had good luck with them. Only real option I want is pci 3.0 x16 atleast 2 slots, along with 4 ram slots. I will be using 2 gpu. (crossfire)

No, you can use a Z87 as long as you have a BIOS update that allows compatibility. You only need to buy a Z97 if you're buying the system new.
