I don’t think you actually added the cpu in the list like the others. There are a lot of incompatibilities. The G4560 uses an lga 1151 socket, so get a mobo with that socket (most likely b250 or z270 chipset boards) With a new mobo, you’d need ddr4 ram. I personally have ddr4-2400, but you could probably alter that if you want. Otherwise, I own a G4560 + gtx 1050 combo and it does fine for some gaming (nothing Triple A though)

I researched lga 1151 motherboards just like you said but none of them support DDR4 RAM they only support DDR3 and DDR3L RAM so I don't know why you are suggesting to get DDR4 RAM when it is not even compatible.

The new motherboard that I found is here mobo and I looked on the manufacture's website and it says that it is compatible with the Pentium G4560, here is the link mobomanu.

So I have altered my build PCBuild. Is it compatible, I believe it is but I'm still not too sure.

Thanks for your help.

I don’t know where exactly you’re getting that from, but I have made this for you. It may be a bit more expensive, but it should run somewhat more smoothly

cpu is not compatible with a 110 mobo without a bios update first, so catch 22 on that
