I'm not that experienced, but looking at that build gives me some ideas. Thanks.

I can't see any red flags as such.  I would say the motherboard has limited upgrade potential - only two ram slots, no crossfire/sli support, fewer SATA channels than boards based on higher chipsets like the H87.  But it has some specialist features aimed at audio enthusiasts connecting high end audio equipment to their PC.  If you're OK with that then fine.

 

The video card seems rather expensive for a GTX 660.  Assuming this is being used for games, the significantly faster GTX 760 is within that price range and maybe worth a look.  It's a bit more power hungry than the GTX660 so if you went with that you might want to upgrade the PSU to something like the Corsair CX600 for a little extra headroom.

 

The ethernet card would only be needed if you wanted to connect to two wired networks at the same time, as one gigabit ethernet port is provided by the motherboard.

Thank you very much jonuk.  I have already found a better motherboard and am currently looking into your options for Graphics cards.
