Best replacement for ASUS Prime B560-PLUS AC-HES motherboard

Options

My son's NZXT gaming computer appears to have a bad motherboard, as diagnosed by IT folks at his school who have been helping him out. They are offering to help him put the new one in, but we need to buy the replacement… and I don't know where to start. Hoping to find something that is compatible with other components. Any suggestions would be very much appreciated!

Existing motherboard is ASUS Prime B560-PLUS AC-HES, Comet Lake, bios version 1601, bios date 5/7/2022

Intel Core i5 10400F

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050

Teamgroup UD4-3200 DDR4

WD Blue SN570 500GB (which needs to be increased)

Razor USB Sound Card

Thanks in advance for any recommendations.

    Greetings,

    The 10400F is a 10th gen Intel processor with a LGA 1200 chipset type, so you're going to need a motherboard that supports that. Sadly, those have been discontinued from the manufacturer so we no longer carry this at Micro Center. You may be able to find them from other sources online, however. You'd need to verify the motherboard is compatible with 10th-generation Intel processors / LGA 1200.
