LGA 1200 is the socket (interface) between the motherboard and processor.

it's just the motherboard & processor.

motherboard:
z490 = motherboard chipset (z means capable of overclocking).
gigabyte = brand
aorus master = model name
LGA 1200 = socket (Lane Grid Array, 1200 pins on the socket), basically the physical compatibility between CPU and motherboard. LGA 1200 applies to intel 10th gen CPUs.
ATX = motherboard form factor

Dead end upgrade path with intel and this combo fyi.

Not sure why this is almost a $400 MB. Z390 Master was $100 less. I got mine around $220 and I thought that was high.
Why is there no upgrade path? I haven't built myself a computer in a long time and I was thinking about this combo, actually. Would it be a mistake?

Dont expect upgrade paths with intel anyway. Theyve been changing chipsets every 2 years so just buy this mobo if you need it and forget about future proofing

Dead end upgrade is not true. It's expected Rocket Lake can drop into this motherboard. This motherboard has PCIe 4.0 for that exact reason.

The new AMD CPUs (Zen) are the ones that are a dead end upgrade path.

most people don't upgrade their CPUs every year. while AMD is doing a better job with upgradeability, they're on their last generation for the AM4 socket. so either way, if you do build a computer now, by the time you need a CPU upgrade, there will be a new platform anyway. no one will buy a 10th gen intel CPU now and then "upgrade" to an 11th 4-5 years from now.

the point is don't worry too much about "future-proofing" or upgrade paths. buy what you need / what you can afford / what is available. there will always be new technology that is "soon to come" that makes your tech outdated in some other way despite how much you try to future-proof.

By the time you need a new CPU, you need a new motherboard. It doesn't matter.

Shouldnt be too worried about a 10 core i9 being out of date anytime soon. My 8 core AMD from 2012 is finally going to get replaced this year.

Pretty tight budget for the most expensive parts. I guess grab a 2600x/3600x, a 350/450 chipset mb, and a rx 580 on ebay.
