Hey everyone! Looking for a little advice here. Seems my processor and motherboard have <Mod Edit> the bed and are in need of replacing. Sadly i don’t have a whole lot of funds and I’m wondering what the most economically friendly processor/motherboard is to pair alongside a 1080ti without bottlencking. Ny previous processor was an i76700k and i haven’t really payed much attention to the advancements in CPUs. I’ll attach a link to the other comment so of my build here: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/8nYmsk

I also have to replace my power supply but that shouldn’t have a compatibility issue. Really it just has to be compatible with the ram/cooler/ and case. Thanks for any suggestions!

A Ryzen 3600 and B550 would work great

Ended up going with this processor but an asus z490-p because the phantom gaming is absolute garbage for over clocking. Can’t handle the high temps it’s subpar aluminum heat sinks can’t disperse. That board might be okay for the 10600 but not a K version. Thanks for the help!
