Hey guys im building a new pc so i need help. I already have GTX 1050 2gb and its enough for me but i need new CPU and Motherboard. Also i need new RAM and PSU. Help me?

So for Motherboard i want to get ASUS H110M-K and for CPU i want to get Kaby Lake i5 7400 3.0 GHz up to 3.5 GHz.
-Are these 2 components compatible? If yes i want to get Kingston FURY 8GB 2400MHz DDR4 CL15 DIMM 1Rx8 HyperX FURY Red for RAM.

So now.. If my parts are ok and compatible i want you to recommend me PSU and if these components are not compatible please help me. And i want Intel CPU i5 so look something around that. Ty guys!

Ok one more thing. In my store there are 3 nearly the same Motherboards.
1.ASUS H110M-K ( i want to get this one )
2.ASUS H110M-D 1 x Serial (Com)
3.ASUS H110M-R

Idk which one is the best? Again help and ty!

edit: and yes i have SSD 240gb already from kingston (no need help for that i think)

Maybe i can get ASUS PRIME H310M-K Motherboard? Because i just found out that H110M is supporting just 6th Gen. and my CPU is 7400. So i need to get Motherboard that supports up to 8th Gen. like ASUS PRIME H310M-K? I dont know
 
I suggest you go with the latest Intel platform, it will cost about the same and you have an upgrade path in the near future.
Intel Core i5-8400
ASUS PRIME B360M-A LGA1151 (300 Series)
Seasonic FOCUS SSR-450FM 450W 80 + Gold Power Supply
 

Yep, and actually, even an i3-8100 will outperform an i5-7400 in every way, at a significantly lower price...

Intel added additional cores to each tier and boosted clock speeds for their 8000-series processors to remain competitive against AMD's Ryzen, so there's no real point in going with an older processor for a new build now. The current i3's outperform the previous-gen i5s, and the current i5s outperform the previous gen i7s. Unless someone is upgrading an older system with a motherboard that they want to re-use, the 8000-series processors (or Ryzen) are the way to go.

You will need a 300-series motherboard for these newer processors from Intel though (H310, B360, etc), though these motherboards won't work with prior-gen processors.

Hm. So can i get ASUS PRIME B360-PLUS with i3 8100 3.6 GHz? Is this good? If yes then im going for it. No need to buy i5 if the performance is lower.

The i3 8100 is equivalent to a evenly clocked 7th gen i5. 8th gen i3 are pure quad cores, instead of dual core with hyperthreading. Going with the older platform makes 0 sense, as you are lose out on an upgrade path not available, on a 7th gen platform. That 8100/B360 combo is plenty fine.
 


The i3 8100 is a good choice with 4 cores and the clock speed of 3.60GHz. Better than 7th gen Core i5 7400.

The i5-8400 is little better, with 6 cores that can reach 4.0GHz
Multitasking and on games that are more CPU dependent, there will be slightly better performance, a bit higher FPS in games.

Go with either i3 8100 or i5-8400 depending on your budget and computer usage.
