Thank you for contacting the Intel community.
That is the correct; you can find the processors supported for this motherboard at the link Al Hill provided. I looked that ASUS website and the Intel® Core™ i7-7700K Processor is compatible with your ASUS MAXIMUS VIII RANGER motherboard.
Is it good for a game computer?
Yes, it is good for gaming, check out the games optimized for your graphics. I suggest having the BIOS and drivers up to date for better performance.
Thank you very much !

I would also caution you, if the newer processor is supported, to make certain that you do any required BIOS upgrades to the motherboard BEFORE you install the newer processor.
