I
I wouldn't get the ASUS board just because the PCB is brown and it looks horrible. I have the little brother the Z97-A and I hate the look. but out of the other ones I would go with either the MSI, Asrock Extreme 6, or the Asrock OC formula. A lot of it depends on the other colors in your PC and how much you want to push your CPU / how many GPUs you want to have in your PC. As for used motherboard I try to not buy them unless you know the person because you don't know what happened with it or if it has been damaged.
