Hey guys I'm having a hard time deciding which motherboard I should pair my i7 8700k with and I'm coming here for some advice.
This is my first PC build and it's looking like either ASUS or ASRock would be a good choice. I have $200 to spend on it.
 
The Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Elite...Good VRM's $179 ish good board

Gigabyte Auro Z390 Pro excellent VRM's, lost of extra's and very good overall..just $10 more than the Elite.

EVGA FTW always well made, good VRM's for overclocking...

Asus Z390 Gaming E a bit over budget

Fingers crossed you should be able to find a good deal on the Z390 motherboards as the Z490 is out. I presume you have the 8700K....
