Wanting some opinions on the motherboard I've selected. My only hang up on the Strix is the difficulty with getting the drivers right on it, or so I've read. If there's no other real benefits of changing to something else that's cool, just wanting second opinions. Thanks guys!

I wouldnt get intels 7th gen, just because ryzen smacks it to the ground.

ehhh that wont work well for me as I've already purchased most of what's on my list, the only components that I haven't bought yet is the mother board, CPU, GPU, and ram. thanks for the input though, and im open to running a AMD, but don't really want to go to a 1080ti, do you have any input on that?

Why no 1080ti? It's one of the best cards on the market for gaming. And, as you can see, it fits in the budget. I don't know at what resolution you're going to play. But the only time when it cant provide 60fps is 4k on medium/high.

You'll be able to game on it for years to come on 1080p.

The only thing you have to consider is the performance gain for $200.

I do recommend getting AMD ryzen, and if you really want intel, wait for coffee lake.

the previous list you sent, is that the Ryzen and motherboard setup you'd go with?

Yes, originally it'd be ASRock, but I heard their faulty motherboards suddenly increased in the past few weeks so I won't recommend any of those until further clarification.
