  1. Best answer
    No. A B250 motherboard is not compatible with an 8700K. The only compatible motherboards available right now are Z370 motherboards.
  2. Could you recommend a good gaming motherboard please as I’m new to all this
  3. If you liked b250f abilities, then you can go for Asus Z370F. But you will also need a cooler for that CPU. Something like Cryorig H5.
  4. What features besides compatibility with the 8700K are important? RGB lighting? WIFI? Form factor? pcpartpicker.com can allow you to compare COMPATIBLE products. I would recommend you spend some time "playing" on that site.
  5. I’m not looked for many features maybe just vr combatability. Not really bothered with rgb. And I couldn’t see some parts on pc part picker. So would the cryorig h5 be good for my needs?

    the h5 is not strong enough if you ever want to play around with maxing overclocking the cpu, but will function properly if you run it stock or mild OC

    get the r1 ultimate if you dont want it to be the limiting factor


    you dont need a 850w power supply, drop down to the 650w model, it will have plenty of headroom

    I would go with the asrock Z370 Extreme4
  7. So I’m not looking for overclocking and I would just like it to run smoothly and easily. So would the z730 do that?

    drop down to a good 550w power supply


    if you dont intend to overclock then no point in anything bigger


    you should also get the i7 8700 NON "k" and use the stock cooler
  9. Would the stock be loud because I intend to do gaming and the occasional stream
  10. Or if I just got a intel core 8700 would that bring more options for motherboards

    No. Same as an 8700K.

    and what fps would this pc run on 1080p or 4k on lets say GTA V?

    the 1080 is not really a 4k card

    you want at least a gtx 1080 ti for that


    at 1080p the gtx 1080 can easily damn near max out gta with over 60 fps ( you will need to turn off/lower some advanced settings )

    and as i am new to this is there anything that would make this run better for gaming? i only have a budget of around 2000 euro. i think that's round about 2450$. like is there anything on my list that makes another component overkill or bottleneck
