Im planning on buying the mobo Asus H110M-K with a G.SKILL 8gb (2x4GB) DDR4-2133
But the problem is, I wont have the budget to replace my cpu which is the I3-540 so Im thinking if it will be okay to use this cpu for the new mobo and ram.
Also what cpu can fit the best with the mobo and the ram?

It should, but there is a small chance it may come with an incompatabe bios and not work. Also the a320 limits your uograde path and doesnt allownyou to overclock.

The b450 is worth the extra $5 to me
The thing is, it’s already sold out in the shop that I will go. So the last option will be this mobo gigabyte GA-B450M-S2H
