Hello everyone and happy new year! :D

You should get a Z270 motherboard with that processor and the board you picked is not worth that price.
I would look at the 6 core i5 8600K and buy some overkill on the PSU to allow for future upgrades.
You also have a slow 5400 RPM hard drive i would loose that.

Wow,thank you for the time you've spent for that answer!
I have already bought the motherboard because in my country (greece) it's below half that price (idk why it's so expensive in part picker lol :p) and i have also updated its bios so that it can support kabylake cpus. Plus i got the mobo even cheaper ,because i found it in a stock house for 80 euros (good deal imo ) . Moving on the storage , thank you for it pointing out , i just replaced it with the hard drive you suggested me. And about the psu, do i really need that much wattage? Isn't it considered an overkill?
Again ,thanks for your answer! :)
