Need help choosing a motherboard

 Share

Hi guys, I’m planning on building a brand new computer, my current one is over 7 years old and nothing was replaced inside. I will be getting these parts but cannot decide which motherboard I should get.

 

CPU - i9 9990k

RAM - Corsair vengence pro 32gb (4x8) 3000MHz

SSD - Samsung 860 EVO 2.5 SATA 1TB 

        - Samsung 970 EVO M.2 256GB

 

I will not be doing a lot of over clocking, and use my computer mostly for gaming purposes. I heard that I don’t need to spend a lot on motherboards but I’m confused as there r too many options out there. I’m planning on using this computer for at least 5 years, and may add newer parts to it in the future.

 

please help me choose a good quality motherboards that can last a couple years and won’t be outdated soon. Thanks :)

Oh yeah I brain-farted and forgot. Even an Aorus Ultra is fine, IMO.

then the z390 aorus elite, pro, ultra and master are great choises

 

i would personally choose the master, but gigabyte got ready for the 9900k on z390, all aorus boards have at least a 12 phase cpu power design

asus? to stay away from them, vrm problems that make even the crosshair 4 phase

msi? pro carbon maybe... but at least better than asus

asrock? extreme4 or taichi (ultimate)

 

gigabyte is so nice on z390... only asrock that can come close

no problem! good luck with it

One more question regarding my ssd... Technically I can use m.2 ssd for my computer alone right? M.2 ssd is basically a SATA ssd that is smaller and faster and it attaches directly to your board right? It can work on it’s on, I don’t need to get another ssd if I don’t want to? Been doing some research on that and still have some confusion...

yep, m.2 is a formfactor just like 2,5 3,5 or 5,25

 

mx500 ssds are pretty nice and cheap
