Hi, the major difference between the Hero and Rampage IV Extreme is they both use different sockets, where the Hero uses the LGA1150 and the Rampage uses LGA2011. In terms of features, the Rampage has a lot more features due to it's chipset and form factor although it would depend on what your purpose is. If you wanted to game on it then the Hero would be the better choice as having the ability to use a 6 core CPU on the LGA2011 platform will not have any benefit from a having a higher FPS since quad core CPUs can easily handle games but if it's for video rendering and other workstation purposes then the 6 core will do the job assuming the software can fully utilize it.

Go on Overclock.net get some pointers before you end up getting beat by a lesser board!

 

PS you want an Intel K chip

Yes all K's can be OC'ed, video also a lot to do with gaming.  I have a couple of very serious gamer buddies, one has under a grand in his setup and hands down bioch slaps the others near two grand setup pretty decently.  the guy with the lesser setup spent some time researching and got it right.

The Intel Core i7-4770K Haswell 3.5GHz LGA 1150 84W will not fit in the ASUS Rampage IV Extreme LGA 2011

 

Also, if you're not going to overclock then you don't have to consider how well the system will overclock.

By going with the LGA1150 platform and the Asus Hero motherboard, you are certainly not cutting corners as it is premium grade board and is packed with features for its form factor but also the i7-4770k is more then capable of handling of sort games even CPU bound games like Skyrim. Also one other point to consider is overclocking, if you plan to do it then i suggest a investment in a decent CPU cooler as Haswell runs a lot hotter when overclocked.

 

also  does in the refresh rate of monitors matter much?

To be honest with you, not really much unless your a competitive gamer who is competing then yes but 60hz  should be fine.

How much are you planning on spending and are you going to be reusing any of the old equipment such as the case and optical drives?
