Quick question I couldn't find anywhere else.

I heard that the motherboard makes a huge difference when it comes to virtual machines, relating specifically to things like speed and input lag. Im going to use the MSI MPG Z390, Is this good for virtualization? It works really well with both of my graphics cards that im going to use, so before I get it, it would be really nice to know if I should get a new one before I spend my money on something that doesn't work perfectly.

Motherboard doesnt really matter to virtualization in general, you just want to make sure that any chipsets will be supported by your hypervisor. 

Generally you wont have any compatibility issues these days. Chipsets are far more standardized than they were 10 years ago. 

 

Any modern board from the last ~8 years will support virtualization with an appropriate CPU, including VT-d / IOV if you need IOMMU support.
