    motherboards dont require certain video cards so compatablity is not a issue.

    If the motherboard is new enough to have UEFI firmware, it should be compatible with modern graphics cards. Older motherboards may lose compatibility after the 900 series of NVIDIA cards due to lack of UEFI compatibility. It is a case-by-case thing when it comes to that (depending on motherboard manufacturer providing necessary firmware update and/or video card manufacturer providing necessary firmware update to provide compatibility), so it's important to know whether your motherboard uses UEFI prior to making purchasing decisions.

    99.9% of the time if the motherboard and video card both have the same slot, in this case a PCI-e it will work, however some pre UEFI board, notably he 790i do not work with the 30 cards.  We are talking old core2 system here. If you board has a PCIe slot you should be fine.

    Even if you're lucky enough to find one in stock, you'll most likely be looking at Scalper prices anyways right?

    GPU to Motherboard compatibility was a thing many years ago.  If you are buying new parts today... these are the things to consider,
     
    The obvious
    - AMD or Intel CPU, which one
    - AMD or nVidia GPU, which one
    - Monitor size, type, resolution, refresh, etc.
    - Choosing the correct motherboard for your CPU
    - Choosing the correct memory for your CPU and motherboard
    - Choosing your storage options and fitment needs, SSD M.2 or 2.5", HDD, etc.
    - Desired features for motherboard, number of slots and ports, etc.
    - Aesthetics of case and components: LEDs, color of case and parts, etc.
    - Mouse and Keyboard specs and ergonomics
    Case fitment issues
    - Motherboard size: ATX, mATX, ITX, etc
    - Graphics card length and height
    - CPU heatsink type and clearances
       including clearance over memory heat spreaders
    Case cooling
    - Layout and capability
    - Depends on CPU / GPU power and cooling needs
    - Fitment for AIO coolers
    - Water cooling?
    Power supply spec
    - GPU requirements
    - CPU requirements
     
    I'm sure there is a lot more to consider...
