Introduction

I created this page to hopefully help some people decide what to use for their next VFIO build. The 2 most important things to consider when creating a build are Motherboard and CPU.

I will create a list of recommendations at different price points. You can treat this as a reference.

Low-End Intel Boards:

Gigabyte B365M DS3H - 75USD - mATX / 9th/8th Gen Intel
ASRock H370M Pro4 - 95USD - mATX / 8th Gen Intel


Low-Mid End Intel Boards:
MSI z370 pc pro - 8th Gen Intel / DDR4 Mem up to 4000+

Mid-End Intel Boards

ASRock Z390 PRO4 - 150USD - mATX / 9th/8th Gen Intel / 2x PCI-Express 3.0 x16 Slots (run single at x16 or dual at x16/x4),
Gigabyte z390 UD - 200USD - mATX / 9th/8th Gen Intel / 10+2 Phases /

High-end Boards:

GIGABYTE X299 UD4 Pro - $250 - Supports Intel Core i9/X

I will make Complete Builds at different price ranges in this post...

Low-End Intel Budget build.

Gigabyte B365M DS3H - 75USD
Intel i5-8400 - 170USD
Timetec Hynix IC 16GB - 65USD - I use the 32GB kit in my personal rig with a 9700KF. Good ram at a cheap price.
AMD Radeon RX 570 4GB - $130 - Don't expect more than 1080p 60FPS at Med settings.
EVGA 100-W1-0600-KR - 600W/65USD - May be a bit overkill for this build but allows room for upgrades and was a good price.
Crucial MX500 - 69USD -
Cougar MX330 Mid Tower - 53USD
Total: $693 / Power Consumption: 303 W

Note: If you need a bit more GPU power for an extra $45 you can go with the MSI GTX 1650 Super - $175
