Hi Guys,

My current setup
i3 3220
Gtx 960 2gb
8gb corsair vengeance RAM

I want to upgrade my PC.
Here are the components that I am thinking of upgrading to:
CPU - i5 9400f
GPU - Rtx 2060
Motherboard and RAM

My two main questions are,
1) I am not unable find a low cost motherboard for this CPU. Please suggest me motherboards that are compatible with this CPU. I've seen some threads where there are low cost motherboards however that need a BIOS update. The Indian market is not so fast in these kind of things. I just need to know some low value compatible motherboards for this processor.

2) Is this CPU going to bottleneck the RTX 2060?
 
It is apparent that Intel does not want you to buy their i5-9400F processor. Because it is only compatible with the more expensive Z390 chipset (our-of-the-box), it is more for those with a Pentium or i3 already who can update their bios before purchasing/installing the 9th-gen i5.

If you are on a tight budget, a Ryzen 5 2600 + B450 mobo is another option.
