My motherboard just crapped out on me. Its an old motherboard, LGA1150 series, so the ram is ddr3 and the cpu is for LGA1150.

I recently purchased an RTX2060 and would like to upgrade my hardware so that it doesn't bottleneck my GPU. I'm going to upgrade my RAM and CPU to the current gen motherboard hardware.

I'm not to sure what to get, I don't really have a budget, but I would rather not have upgraded my PC just yet, so I'm not looking to spend top dollar amounts. My monitor is 1080p 60 hz, so I don't need anything too crazy either.

My current specs: https://pcpartpicker.com/user/Dbrinks2/saved/

P.S. I'm not really interested in the new Intel CPU's that are about to release.

I think I’m gonna go for the Ryzen 3600, I’ve looked into getting that cpu before. What’s the difference in those two motherboards, and why spend that much on a motherboard
