I'm looking into getting an i9-9900K.

When it comes to PC building I can't say I'm certain about anything. I was wondering if my motherboard could handle it. I got the motherboard along with my whole rig about a year and a half ago. Is my motherboard the only thing I should be concerned about? If so, what other things should I worry about (like power supply, I don't know)? I read that you had to download a Bios update.


All help is GREATLY appreciated, thank you so much!
