I am looking to upgrade my pc, so I would need some help choosing a cpu for my Zotac 980 ti Amp Omega. I would probably needing a new motherboard also because my current one is an Asus h81m-k which is ddr3 and LGA 1150. I am looking for something probably on the cheaper side. Not looking to spend over 300$ total.
