Hello :) 

This is my first time building my own (gaming) PC and i have a couple questions.

-If i choose to have a "GeForce GTX 760" as my graphics card and a "Intel Core i5-4590 3.3 GHz 1150" as my CPU. Will there be a downside if a chose a AMD asrock motherboard? I am asking this because the Graphics card is from Nvidia and the Motherboard is from AMD.

-Do you have any other recommendations for a motherboard?

-Will the CPU (Intel Core i5-4590 3.3 GHz 1150) bottleneck the Graphics card (GeForce GTX 760)?

-How much RAM would you recommend to run recent games?

Thank you so much for your help :love: 

Edit: Wow thank you guys for the fast responses :love: 
If you guys don't mind i want to add another question.
- From which manufacturer should i buy my GeForce 760 from? Have been looking for a while but can't decide >.<

1. A AMd motherboard is not compatible with any intel chipset, so anything like AM3, AM3+, is not compatible with intel chipsets, you need to be looking at boards for intel chipsets
2.A h97 board like the h97 gaming 3 will be good
3 No, it won't
4 For a good gaming pc, 8gb 1866mhz at cl9 latency

i5 4590 and GTX 760 is a perfect match if you dont want to overclock.
8gb would do it.

You will need a motherboard with an LGA 1150 socket to snug the CPU in. ;) 

Since you are not overclocking. Any from the H97 series will be a great choice.
