Hi everyone so first I'd like to apology for my poor english. I'm going to build a new computer so I took those parts: - intel i4930K - EVGA GeForce GTX 780 3GB OR the TI one OR EVGA GeForce GTX 690 4GB. I need help for this,the GTX 690 is much more expensive but I don't know if it's worth it. - G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1866 Memory

So I need help to choose the motherboard. I looked up for the z87 motherboards. I heard that at this point there were aproximately all the same. So I'm going to do a dualboot ubuntu/Windows, ubuntu for every days life and windows for 3D animations and video-games. I heard that some z87 had problems with Ubuntu or with Grubs, some are saying that it's working well. So I'd like opinions about a personal experience of someone with a z87 and linux. Thank you a lot for reading me.

I have a Z87 motherboard and it's not causing me trouble. The only issue I have is shutdown instead restarts, which seems Ubuntu-specific so I'd imagine it's not the motherboard's fault.

Just make sure you disable Secure Boot.

Which Z87 do you have? –  spoke612 Feb 13 '14 at 22:29
I have the Gigabyte Z87X-D3H. I'm no mobo expert, but I think it's a pretty good board. –  ruscur Feb 13 '14 at 22:32
