Z97 motherboard help!

I need a replacement Z97 motherboard with at least 8 SATA 6GB/s ports available, has to be ATX. As it's an older socket, it is harder to find them in stock, especially for what I need at a reasonable price in the UK. The one I would love to find is the ASUS ROG MAXIMUS VII HERO.

Is there any need to consider the newest skylake sockets, as I only game at 1080p with a GTX 970?

The Maximus VII Hero is an EXCELLENT choice!! http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/offer-listing/B00K8MUTMO/ref=dp_olp_new_mbc?ie=UTF8&condition=new

There are no Z97 boards that will support Skylake, need socket 1151 for that.
