I have checked a few questions here regarding the GPU and bought the 1080Ti. Now I am trying to figure out the rest of the configuration and it should be below 1000$.
I have seen that
i5-8600K sounds like a good option and I would like to go with 8th generation. However, now I am stuck with choosing the appropriate motherboard and cooling units.
In my country I have available:
GIGABYTE Z370 AORUS GAMING 3 REV.1.0 and
ASUS ROG STRIX Z370-H GAMING which i have available for
I am also considering
Gigabyte Z370 HD3 which is a cheaper option
Please note, that I do not need anything shiny (RGB LEDs etc.) but single PCI x16 is required. On top of this, I will need a suggestion for cooling.
Also, it would be great if someone could tell me which boards play nicely with Linux (Ubuntu).
Any suggestions are more than welcome, even which brand seems better to you.
