Need Advice

It took me for quite a while about deciding which CPU I'll be getting between the i7 9700k and i5 9600k and ended up choosing the i5. A few performance higher by the i7 is not the worth the price between the i5 when it comes to gaming.

About the motherboard Asus Rog Maximus XI Formula Z390 is it really that perfect for the i5 9600k? I just thought I love the LCD screen on the motherboard. But professionally is it good to pair it with the i5 9600K? The price of the motherboard is way more expensive than the CPU it self. Any other recommendation for the motherboard that it is wise to pair to i5 9600K? I don't care about the overkill, I just want to build a perfect gaming PC for the eyes of professionals the way that they will not think I am just basing on the price like I'll pick whatever it is expensive. I'll use a 2070 BTW.

Any recommendations for the motherboard? I prefer ASUS just for the sake of proprietary, or any other recommendations will be much appreciated.

Do you have a certain budget for the overall system or specifically for the motherboard? Also, are there any specific features or requirements which you want in your new motherboard? There are a wide variety of boards from many manufacturers (with a wide variety of price points also, so having a price budget or range which you are looking within would help to eliminate some products which would either not have a certain feature/s or that would be priced too high.

Hope this information post was helpful  ?,

Yeah, I'm really not that picky with the features. I'm just gonna use it mostly for gaming, I mean all of the time and even turning my computer off very rarely which means almost 24hrs open like 24/7 open.
