get a better PSU, a corsair CX or coolermaster masterwatt at least, and wait for zen 2.

hi thanks for the advice, about the psu i already have one sitting around, im trying to keep in a budget and some friends told me that its powerful enough. 

about the amd i have a bitter expirence with this company so im trying to avoid them (some warranty  and costumer service issues) 

 

(where im from at least they provide terrible customer service and wont respect warranty)

the pro/elite versions sorry for leaving that out my bad 

Take the Elite, Aorus Pro IIRC only goes upto 2666Mhz for RAM speed. The Elite can go much higher.

Where did you hear about that? Z390 boards can go past 2666mhz just fine.
