just wait a bit h/b-boards should be on its way.
i3 8100 is definitely a great cpu and future-proof
Wait a month or so and they will relase b370 or other chipset cheaper than z370 ... z370 its directly for OC.
steer away from PC games... salt and toxicity from all over the place
use ur money to buy food instead
Wait for cheaper boards and buy i3
Btw what gpu do u have?
To put it into a perspective, 8100 is exactly the 7500 but cheaper, even ryzen 1500x is worse than latter in any way. Cheapest superior ryzen cpu is 1600 which still has worse gaming performance and 10% at most multi core performance.
To clarify, are you going to buy from Amazon? Or some other place. To be sure I know the right price for you.
z370 mobo is not even expensive, not sure why so many are concerned with $130 mobo
