hi ive got an RTX 2080ti coming soon I don't wanna put it in my PC until I know its safe to do so. so yeah my question is will it be okay in my motherboard from my little skim around my motherboards specs and the 2080ti specs it should be fine, but its always best to check with smarter people on here.

so my other little question is power supplies. according to nvidias website the GPU requires a minimum of 650w, i have a corsair cx 750 gold will that be enough to power it or should i go for the one listed in the thread title and if so is it compatible with the motherboard.

I don't believe there is such a thing as a CX 750 gold, pretty sure the entire CX line is bronze.

Technically, yes, that PSU is enough to power a 2080Ti and a B250 board can support any PCIe device.

Certainly not ideal, you have the most powerful graphics card in a relatively budget motherboard. If you don't have at least an i7-7700 the GPU will not be able to run to its full potential.
 
That cpu and gpu is a good pairing.

That motherboard will also work.

All cx units are bronze. The CX750 is good enough for the 2080ti, but about the minimum id suggest.

It it all compatable. You will do no harm by using that gpu in that system.

Yes, it will work safely, but some upgrades would be a benefit.
Also, what CPU cooler do you have?

I would upgrade the board to a z270 to OC the CPU. This will help it in newer games.
Also, id upgrades to an 80+ gold 650 or 750w unit.'

hey man so is it possible you can find me a motherboard with at least 6 USB ports that compatible I have a lot of peripherals
 
well does it have to be a 200 series how much is something slightly higher I don't want to be buying something second hand really
You could buy a 600 series board, but that would need a bios update and would have the same issues.

If you don't want to buy second hand you can buy this new ASRock Z270 Killer motherboard

yeah see I need my 6 usb ports for all my flight sim stuff, any less than that and im losing out on important stuff I use for playing. so what exactly am I looking for when it comes to a new motherboard. my budget is about £150 so if that helps you can find something a bit pricier for me. I feel really horrible wasting your time like this

I think that is just a mistake on their part for selling multiple boards with the same page.

You can clearly see in the first image the Z270H which is what you have selected, and it does have 8 USB ports on the back.

To me I don't really see an issue with getting any Z270 board. You can always get a USB hub for your less important devices. Might even make it more convenient for plugging things in.
