This is literally perfect..

Except for that motherboard, dont get that for a $400 8-Core CPU, it's just not that great. Of course, it's usable, but at that budget ,you would probably want a better motherboard.

Maximus if you can get another $150 will serve you very well. (maximus is a line-up, get whatever motherboard you want, but i believe the maximus hero is the cheapest.)

Gigabyte Z390's are pretty good up and down the line, an Aorus Elite would be excellent.

For Mobo the designaire would be the best bet for you.

yeah, but it's certainly better than the MSI. it' sonly 50$ more or so. But yeah the Gigabytes are great. Designaire and Aorus Master are both Gigabyte.

Just choose a motherboard with good reviews and fits your budget
