Preparing to build a new computer

I am doing much research into building a new computer. I’ve been working with pcpartpicker, Tom’s Hardware, and other sites. pcpartpicker is really nice and a great help. Thank you pcpartpicker!

One of my conundrum has been deciding among so many choices for motherboards. Specs I see for Asus motherboards costing $385 seem pretty much the same as those costing $175, so what, exactly, is the difference?

Here is an article I just found that I hope will answer some of my questions.

And here is a breakdown of all Corsair coolers.

Strix Z270E Gaming has wifi and bluetooth, excellent audio with noise suppression.
