I have just gotten an i7-5820k cpu
and have a 4gb Gtx 1080ti.
I know I will need ddr4 ram and will get 2x8gb 3200mhz ram.
Are there any motherboards for this build?
*looking for something under $200 cad

Your CPU is actually an i7-5820K -- That CPU requires an X99 motherboard, and optimally a matched set of 4 DDR4 DIMMs. Two 3200Mhz DIMMs would be a waste of money. The CPU supports 2133Mhz and is best with four of them -- https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/products/82932/intel-core-i7-5820k-processor-15m-cache-up-to-3-60-ghz.html
You won't find a name brand X99 motherboard for $200CAD. You might find a Chinese no-name X99 motherboard.
You can find name brand USED X99 motherboards on E-Bay Canada for less than $200CAD.

Thanks for the insight, I'll look into a X99 motherboard and see how it goes. Thanks!
