    Question Wich motherbard should I buy? - Help!

    Hello!!!!!

    I have just sold my Notebook (Zephyrus S GX531GX.. really nice machine) and now I'm going for a Desktop.

    Until now what I have bought:
    EVGA 2080 Super Hybrid
    I5 10600K

    Use:
    Sim Racing (ACC, AC, RF2, IR, etc)

    I need some help choosing the motherboard, I want something that could use for the next years, but also I don't want to spend money on something that I would not use. I have in mind overclocking a little bit the I5, but nothing hard.

    For example, the MAXIMUS XII is usually used for overclocking, but maybe it has some features that in the future I will need them, or they will be used right now with better results, or I will not need a motherboard for the next... 6 years??... Cooler, faster, I really don't know. Mi idea in the future (and depends on how things go) I want to upgrade to a I9

    The options I have are the following

    ASUS ROG MAXIMUS XII Z490 Hero -> 397
    Asus ROG STRIX Z490 E -> 283


    Maybe out there is something better?

    That 100 bucks would be invested on the desktop, better water cooling, power supply, case, etc...

    What do you think about it?

    If here is not the place to post it I kindly ask the administrator to erase it.

    Thanks a lot for the advice!

    Hi,

    The ROG Strix Z490-F Gaming (or ROG Strix Z490-E Gaming if you need WiFi/BT) will do the trick.
