Question What Motherboard to Complete My Build?

Jan 6, 2021
Hi! I'm a complete PC building novice - have been grabbing parts here and there around the holiday season in the hopes of building my first PC in the new year. I was lucky enough to score a 3060 ti during a drop at Best Buy and now just need a motherboard last to finish my build. My current parts are here and below:

CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 3800x

Memory: G.Skill Tridentz RGB 16GB DDR4-3600

Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti 8GB

Case: Corsair 275R ATX Mid Tower Case

Power Supply: EVGA 220-G5-0650-X1 Super Nova 650 G5, 80 Plus Gold 650W

I will also be using a 4K elgato capture card, which will need a PCIE slot, if that factors into anything.

Mainly stumped as to what motherboard I should get to tie everything together? Also, if there are any recommended SSDs/HDs that would be a massive help as well! Thanks in advance!


the 1tB Mx500 (sata ssd) is on sale at Amazon & Bestbuy for $85 right now.
If you're looking for an nvme ssd then budget buyers usually get an intel 665p and top end buyers typically grab a Samsung Pro drive with their evo being midrange.
