I am looking to upgrade my i3 9100f since the cyber weekend sale is going on right now at newegg, I had my eye on the i7 9700f. And was wondering my my motherboard (MSI H310M Pro-VDH plus) would be able to handle it,,if not I would appreciate it if you could link a motherboard preferably in the 60-90 USD range

Nope,your VRMs don't even have a heatsink and you want them to supply 182W like that?

Motherboards on the Intel platform are very expensive,but on the AMD platform good B450 boards are very affordable.

The MSI B450 TOMAHAWK MAX is very good and affordable ($114)

You can use the RAM from your current motherboard with it.

do you think that the ASRock B365M Pro4 would be able to handle it?

It should handle it.but the support for memory speeds is bad,2666MHz is slow and will bottleneck the CPU.

But if you can live with it,it will be fine.

9700f is a 65W cpu, same as the 9100f. As you cant overclock it should be fine

Better VRMs will help with boost,Thermal Velocity Boost likes get out of spec and don't forget that 8 cores will need more power than 4 cores (TDP is not power consumption).

TDP is about generated heat,not power.
