So if you have put some thoughts into the OC situation I mentioned earlier, and decided to go with my advice, here are some good sub $220 boards you can go with.
MSI Z370-A Pro ($125 on NewEgg) is a very "all-you-need necessity" entry board, it has everything you need, and still allow for some light OC.
Gigabyte Z370XP SLI ($150 on Amazon) is a good entry board as well with a bit more bells and whistles when it comes to the back IO, although I've heard VRMs on the entry/lower end boards from Gigabyte for the Z370 chipets aren't exactly idea or the best for OC, so take your pick. It does have a good aesthetic appeal to it though.
MSI Z370 Tomahawk ($190 on Amazon). Ah, where do I start with this one? It's basically a go to board if you have no clue where to start. Lots of good recommendation for this one, great all-rounder board, decent OC as well, and it looks great, can't go wrong with this.
MSI Z370 KRAIT ($185 on Amazon). This is a great board, it is comparable to the Tomahawk in terms of bells and whistles, with the notable exception of the onboard audio chipset, this one has a newer, more updated audio chipset.
And last but not least, the big boy ASUS ROG Z370-H ($213 on PC-Canada). This board is basically the baby brother of the Z370-E I mentioned above, but with less power delivery phases, so less head room for OC, but still a good option.
Thanks allot man! I literally just missed Memory express, the store its in stock at is actually near my area so hopefully I can make it happen, I appreciate the tip! If not I will look into the other one your recommended.
This is the same monitor you recommended right? https://www.dell.com/en-ca/shop/dell-24-gaming-monitor-s2417dg/apd/210-AIZS/monitors-monitor-accessories
It seems to be even cheaper on the Dell site, I want to get the 27" version but I noticed there are a few differences, but would they preform the same? I don't think 144Hz to 165Hz would make a difference in the real world right? The bigger one also doesn't say "QHD" next to the resolution, does that mean anything?
Thanks for telling me that, I will make sure to OC sooner than later, your totally right, I'll probably never do it if I keep putting it off. haha
Edit: I just seen the edit! Thanks for the other options, I've been thinking about the MSI Z370 Tomahawk, but I will wait to see if I can call in tomorrow and get the gaming 7. It's not like I will be pushing everything to the limits so I don't really think I'll require a top of the line board.
Is there a certain reason you wouldn’t buy an cooler? And would this be a better motherboard to run? https://www.amazon.com/dp/B076CS5SYJ/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_8nN-Bb2542DQ0
