So my system started throwing BSOD errors memory management and one other I ran into and new ram and messing with the seating of the processor hasnt helped. The mobo already had a bad slot and my assumption is its gotten worse. So this is my long winded way of saying I think I need to upgrade the mobo/cpu and upgrade to ddr4 ram and I want to make sure im getting the biggest bang for my buck.

Im looking for gaming performance but im willing to spend some money to get something that will last me a long time.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Geforce RTX 2070
I7 7400k(I think i know its i7 for sure)
Asrock Z87M Extreme4
Corsair CX750M PSU
Predator monitor - high refresh rate i forget the model.

Do you have an alternative to the ASUS Prime B550 Plus AM4 ATX Motherboard because it appears I can only pre order it and I cant find it on any other site.
