Is my motherboard bad ?

 PC Specs
Intel Core i7 - 9700KF
 GTX 1050TI 
MSI B365M MORTAR Motherboard
COOLER MASTER MWE White 600W Power Supply
CoolerMaster 212 EVO cooler  RAM 16GB  2400 MHZ 
HDD 500GB 
SDD 240 GB

So basically I was discussing with people from my region about my pc. They said my build is pretty bad cuz my CPU is way better for my ram and motherboard and for my power supply, but I don't see the reason. Can someone explain it better? 
I know I have bottleneck with my GPU, looking forward to buy a new one, but prices are to high for now.

ps: Sorry for my English, not native language

CPU -- It is a 'K' SKU CPU, so it supports overclocking

Motherboard -- B365 chipset does not support overclocking. You need a Z370 / Z390 motherboard to support the overclock capabilities of your CPU.

RAM -- Nothing really wrong, because CPU can support higher frequency RAM (i.e. DDR4 3000+ MHz). Motherboard also limiting your RAM to 2666 MHz Max.

Power Supply -- Overall not a very good quality power supply, but given it is powering a stock i7-9700KF + GTX 1050 Ti right now, it should be fine.

 

Yes, you have a GPU bottleneck with your system right now.

And yes, GPU prices are very expensive, and stock is low right now....so hold onto your GTX 1050 Ti until you can get a new one.

But in BIOS I have OC settings, so that is my reason for my buying that one motherboard and was the best one in my country rn. I needed the pc fast cuz I am on University and my last mb fried.

Being in University doesn't mean you need a the fastest gaming PC.

I've finished 6+ years of University, and I was able to do most of it with a decent laptop.

The system not will get you through University no problems, and will be MORE than fast enough.

 

Gaming, for high FPS, or high graphics settings, it will be a little harder.

Again, University / School / Work =/= Gaming on your free time

 

You have OC settings, but very little.

Here is the BIOS menu for a MSi Z390 motherboard. It has...

  • OC Mode control
  • CPU Ratio control
  • Ring Ratio control
  • CPU / SA / IO / RAM voltage controls, etc.

Compare that to yours.

How can you overclock your Intel 9th Gen CPU up to 5GHz with MSI Z390  motherboards? Here are a few tips you should know!

A stock 9700K is enough for a GTX 1050Ti. Overclocking your CPU with that card will get you no performance increase. As someone has already mentioned you have a GPU bottleneck right now. If you were to upgrade your GPU you might want to buy a new motherboard but remember the Z390 platform is end of life with no upgrade path (apart from a 9900K). 
You’re better off upgrading your GPU first ( if you have money). Otherwise stick with what you have.
