Solved

I'm new to building a PC (2017) but i not sure which brand of motherboard to go for. Need some guidance thank you.

Hi, i'm KS

i have an 1080p DELL monitor

what components that i'm going for is 1060 3GB graphics card(either nvidia or evga)

DDR4 16GB RAM(not sure which brand yet, any recommendation?)

7th gen processor either pentium or i5, i'm going for H200+ series motherboards(qns is does it do any effect if* i'm buying a clockable processor attaching it to a non clockable motherboard?)

what i want to know is which brand of H200+ series *only ATX* motherboard should i go for.

My budget build is around 1.2k and below. thank you and really appreciate your time & help.
feel free to comment as many as you can & i will see what recommendation u guys give before i make my decision. :)

    I just built a system with around your budget ($1300 US) but I did not need to include a psu in that $1300. I went with a Gigabyte z270x Ultra Gaming, but really you can't go wrong with gigabyte, MSI or Asus as long as you get a model designed for gaming (I assume you're making it for gaming) and also is the correct socket for your cpu. The gigabyte z270x ultra gamer is $150 and for the 7th gen Intel lga 1151 (i5 and i7). Some people also like ASRock.

    I hope that helps.
