Hello everybody,
i am in the process of building my new Pc and i have few questions to ask.

My new pc is gonna contain:
i9-9900k
rtx 3080 10 gb Strix oc
SAMSUNG 1TB 970 EVO Plus M.2
HyperX 16GB Fury RGB DDR4 3600MHz
COOLERMASTER V750 Gold 750W V2
and now i'm not sure if i should go for GIGABYTE Z390 AORUS ULTRA (rev. 1.0) or Asus ROG Strix z390-E Gaming
I don't know which motherboard should i go for, and is it better if i go Asus cause i'm getting the Asus card? Does that even matter?
Also, i was wondering if this PSU is gonna be enough, since i don't plan to overclock components, maybe just small ammount, nothing too much.

Thank you in advance!
 
Your build is fine, as is.
I have no opinion on a Z390 motherboard. Likely, all are ok.
Were you able to snag a 3080?
They seem to be sold out everywhere.
Your psu is very good and sufficient.
Nvidia suggests a 750w psu:
They are conservative to allow for lower quality power supplies that can not deliver advertised 750w.

But, why not buy current gen i7-10700K and a Z490 based motherboard?
It should be cheaper and perform similarly.

Don't have any particular reason why i went for i9-9900k besides that i use my Pc 50/50 for Graphic design and for Gaming. Got the best GPU to run games on and i guess went for the second best option right now for Design.
Anyway, i haven't gotten yet the 3080, it's available here every 2 weeks aprox. So by the end of this week i should be able to get it.
Also, my main question was, is going for Strix motherboard or Aorus motherboard matter? Since i went for Strix GPU.
