Is this Motherboard future proof? (Has support for 4th and 5th gen processors)

MSI Z97-Gaming 5 LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

I am going to be getting the motherboard and processor very soon, and I was wondering if this board is future proof and good for 10% overclocking. I was looking at the Asus z97-A, but It was alittle too pricey. This option is only 129.99.

    Right on the support page here:

    It shows that it does. As long as the CPU is made for the 1150 socket
