Is it to avoid having to reinstall or something like that?

If i dont get a Mobo thats an 1150 then i need to get new ram and new cpu and mobo...
Sorry i originaly posted the wrong Ebay link.
Ive edited the post, there was 1 for 134 or a new board on the overclockers site for 154.

Thats all i managed to find.
I buy from Novatech.
Very reliable and competitively priced.

It's a pretty good one though @Tamarc, I have it myself in my main pc. Bought mine 3 years ago tomorrow, just looked at the invoice to see how much I paid but was part of a bundle so not listed separately
I bought the majority of my setup from Scan. My psu and graphics card were from cclonline.com

I can't find a Z97 motherboard in stock anywhere that I have got components from before. (Scan, ebuyer, aria, overclockers, CCL, Amazon etc)

Of those, the only ones still listing SKUs for Z97 boards are CCL: Gigabyte Z97X-Game Plus - ATX Motherboard for Intel CPUs - GA-Z97X-GAME PLUS, and Amazon: Asus Mod 1150 ASUS Z97-C ATX Motherboard (although there are plenty of piss-taking prices for second hand models in the market place).

If you are looking at the Z97 for its overclocking ability, have a look at the Asus Q87M-E. You won't achieve speeds as high as those on the discontinued Z87/Z97 chipsets; but at least you can still get hold of new stock for ~£120: ASUS Q87M-E - mATX Motherboard for Intel Socket 1150 CPUs - 90MB0FS0-M0EAY5

The Asus ROG Maximus VII Ranger was £130 at launch according to bit-tech's Z97 group test: Z97 Motherboard Group Test - Asus, ASRock, Gigabyte and MSI | bit-tech.net
