For my birthday I am buying an i7-9700K CPU but my motherboard seems to not support that CPU, so I need some help on which one to get.

Any answers are appreciated!
Thanks
 
if you are going for the CPU it is recommended to get a motherboard with a Z390 chipset. you can go for a Z370 but that chipset came out with 8th gen so if it doesn't have the right BIOS version the 9700K will not work with it out of the box

any motherboard from asus, MSI, or gigabyte will be good
