will this motherboard + i7-4820K work as a gaming pc?

Go to solution Solved by JimTheBeet,

Don't see why it wouldn't work - the best gaming computer is the one you can afford! The motherboard looks like it'll do the job for your cpu just fine. Happy building!

Do you already own the  i7 4820k? It's a fairly dated processor with poor integrated graphics, so likely won't make a great gaming PC. Nothing beats a part that you already own value-wise, of course, but there are many fairly afordable (and more powerful) processors on modern sockets.

What are you planning on spending to get the CPU? You can get B450 motherboards for $60 to $70 and with the current prices of 3000 series and 5000 series processors, either would be a much better option. The 4820k is a DDR3 platform and at this point dated beyond it being worth spending really any money on, I'd say it's not worth buying EOL components. Hell, even if you already have the processor or got if for free, you're money would be better spent going for a modern platform as it will save you money in the future and perform much better.

Not a fan of those no name china boards. Seen they have driver issues as only so much is directly supported. 
But that cpu will be a good match for that gpu. Should be a balanced system.
