I am planning to built a budget gaming pc. I have planned to buy following components-

i5 8400
corsair vengeance ddr4 16gb(2x8gb) 2400mhz
ASUS ROG Strix Gaming RX 570 OC Edition 4GB GDDR5 Graphics Card
CORSAIR SMPS CX550
ASUS PRIME B360M-D(https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/PRIME-B360M-D/)

I want to know if there will be any issue in gaming if i buy that cheap motherboard. I am in a tight budget so i cannot buy a decent gaming motherboard right now.
i do not need any faster usb 3.1gen 2 or 4 ram slots, i just want my pc to handle games smoothly. will there be any issue?

the locked processor isn't going to tax the motherboard much at all. it's when you're overclocking and such that you begin to see thermal issues and so on.

but for a good ol locked CPU, nothing to worry about.

XD noted, that the stock cooler is not very good which is true. but it will be plenty good enough for the locked processor. you can replace it no problem with a nice budget cooler to keep it nice and cool if you wish. but anything more than $30 worth is serious overkill for a locked cpu.
