Need help with upgrading PC with i7 7700k & 1080

  Exmakarz 09:23 09 Jan 2018

The problem is it says my motherboard isn't compatible with the new components and when I put a new motherboard on it says

"Some Intel B150 chipset motherboards may need a BIOS update prior to using Kaby Lake-S CPUs. Upgrading the BIOS may require a different CPU that is supported by older BIOS revisions."


Could someone tell me:

A. What is wrong with the motherboard.

B. Why can't I use an Asus - PRIME Z270-A ATX LGA1151 with the i7 and 1080? (The motherboard I was going to buy when I saw it wasn't compatible with my original motherboard)

C. What is a good motherboard I can buy to use for my upgrade.

you say you want to use a system based around a 1080 , maybe you can get a few ideas from my build. I got the 1080 when it first came out'

type my game breaker rig into a search engine and click the top entry , its me !
