Please help
I am building a custom PC in less than a week, I am planning on getting the i7 8700 with the gigabyte B360M D3H,Why I am not buying the i7 8700k because here in India good z370 motherboards start from 220 dollars and good cooler 100 dollars and I am not comfortable with over-clocking
So which board should I buy and in 2-3 months I will upgrade the stock cooler to a 50 dollar air/liquid cooler
Which case would you recommend under 70 dollars??
Thanks in advance your response will mean a lot.

Artismania says:

Sir I am building a PC for my graphic design work, Photoshop/Illustrator and light YouTube video editing. I am looking forward to buy MSI b360m pro-vdh, i3 8gen, 8 gigs of RAM and HDD. (AND I am not planning on to get a graphics card any time sooner) My concerns are for the motherboard — is it enough future proof ? I am currently on a budget, so I’ll start off at minimum.
