This is all high-end, and some of it's cutting edge gear. I don't think you could bottleneck anything if you tried. That concept is years down the road from here even if you selected the most basic options.

Wow technology has advanced so much before we know it!
(..removed..)

Also, would my performance be the exact same if I choose the cheapest motherboard configuration as to the motherboard I have chosen now?

Just comparing, your MB only has 2 DIMM slots which I am sure you are aware of AND only supports Turbo Boost 2.0 and NOT 3.0. How much of a difference that makes I dunno. I suspect others with more knowledge will chime in at some point.

Personally, I go better MB to start and try not to overkill as the MB is one of the best ways to "future proof" a system in my opinion.

Generally speaking, there are only going to be subtle differences between two motherboards separated by only $45. There are 4 DIMM slots in the TUF or MSI MPG, not 2.

A higher quality board often means a few more and/or higher quality ports and connectors, but mostly means better heat management and thermal protection. For only $45 extra, I recommend this upgrade for that reason alone. It may translate to better lifespan. Most people I'm helping don't have the budget for an Asus HERO, so I don't recommend those. I personally would not invest that much. If you need a more definitive answer than that, ask DS, or research each of the 4 boards at their sites. The two boards DS sells at a higher price do cost more than the others elsewhere.

My bad on the Dimm slots. I thought for sure when I read them that it said there were only 2.
