  1. The motherboard you selected isn't compatible with 8th gen intel cpu's. You need to look at a Z370 mobo.

    I like the B3 series power supplies from evga, they offer one in 550 watts for a not to bad price, good warranty too.

    Do you know another motherboard that is compatible but in the 40 - 60 dollar price range?
