    It got the same VRM as the Tomahawk. The B450M-A Pro is the one with weaker VRM.

    Some hardware you should look for:
    https://pcpartpicker.com/products/cpu/#s=60&sort=price&C=6&xcx=0
    or
    AMD Ryzen 5 1600 (12nm) 3.2 GHz 6-Core Processor (YD1600BBAFBOX) - PCPartPicker
     
    and at least one of these motherboards is usually quite affordable.

    so you should get the cheapest among them
     
    the cheapest DDR4 3000 or 3200 you can get is a good choice too, make sure you get 2 sticks and not 1.

    KaitouX reacted to Dedayog in Bad at picking parts need help   
    You're arguing things that really don't measure into credible differences after a certain point, ie. mid-range boards for example.
     
    Higher end boards are for being able to push clocks and run more stable at the extreme, all connections and components included.
     
    Thus it is not necessary to have such a stout board for his CPU/uses.   It won't give him any additional performance, nor less hassle.  May give him peace of mind tho, who knows.
     
    Look at the list the OP started with, it's a jumble.  He didn't pick that motherboard for ANY of the reasons you mention (which really don't add up to much), he did it cuz it had a huge price tag.
     
    Guide him to wisely spend his money, not try to justify blowing it.

    ehm... what did he just show then?
     
    I want you to manually calculate how much a tomahawk for example can handle
     
    nvme performance is the same when put on the same connection, usb performance is depending on the revision, wifi is out of the question here, sound is fair enough, overclocking performance won't be a problem here, stability won't be a problem here, power distribution is even overkill, fan headers are no conflicts, there's no water pump involved
     
    except that it barely does, and if it mattered MSI currently has on almost every pricepoint the best offer with b450
     
    should you get the absolute cheapest? no
     
    but is a midrange motherboard fine for a chip that pulls around 126w on PBO? why wouldn't it?

    You said you got $200 to replace the MB, the Ryzen 1600AF costs $85 and a good B450 MB around $100, which you could drop to a decent one for ~$80, should still be under your budget.

    The 5700XT is faster than the 2060 Super, and the GPU on both consoles are faster than the 5700XT, the Xbox should be around the 2080 Super performance going by the extra CUs over the 5700XT.

    I kept the Samsung NVME but it could be changed to the Crucial P1(QLC) or a sata M.2/2.5" SSD(slower than NVME) that will get you 1TB for only slightly more money if the differences don't matter much for you.
    The GPU I changed to the KFA2 EX because it's decent while being almost €50 cheaper than any other models, the fan curve is too aggressive, which makes it loud but cool, but that can be changed so it isn't that big of a issue and it doesn't seem to be that much louder than other similar models anyway.
    I personally think that a B450+3900X is better value than X570+3700X/3800X so I went that way, if you need features that only are in high-end motherboards you can either go for a X570 and drop the CPU to the 3800X(due to it being only €10 more than the 3700X), or maybe look at expansion cards/external solutions for example a decent DAC/AMP if you want better audio or something like that.
    The cooler is there as a good option if you want something better than the stock one.
    The RM is better than the G3 and 650W is more than enough for this build, the 550W would already be good enough, but due to the pricing I choose the 650W.
    You can also drop to the 3800X and save some money if you think that you won't benefit from the extra cores that the 3900X have.

    Just to add, the cooler like was mentioned before can be bought afterwards in case the stock one is too loud for you, if the stock is quiet enough you save €50, if it isn't you can get a quiet cooler like the Fuma 2.

    KaitouX got a reaction from FajardoX in CPU Bottleneck?   
    I don't think the CPU alone is the issue, the FPS stutters likely is the CPU fault, but the textures and graphics issue might be related to something else. What happens when you increase the settings in the game and when you drop them? The textures are at what setting?
     
    If you want to upgrade anyway I would recommend either waiting for the new Intel CPUs or going with AMD, the 9400F is not really a good CPU, even more when AMD options are often cheaper.

    KaitouX reacted to Mateyyy in GPU for i5 2500K   
    As @JoostinOnline mentioned above, I'd draw the line at Maxwell for Nvidia (900 series), or Hawaii for AMD (R9 200 series).
    Look for deals on the R9 290, or GTX 970 or 980. These are still older cards at this point, but still very capable of decent 1080p gaming in recent AAA titles.

    KaitouX reacted to Fasauceome in Picks for AMD gaming rig under 800$   
    why spend that much on the motheboard when the budget is so tight? And why not get the GTX 1650 super, which has the same performance for less cost? And the PSU is no good.
     
    @ChrimsonRain if you're spending only $800, DDR4 4000 and an X570 motherboard cuts off too much from the GPU. A B450 MAX board from MSI is a better call, with some more conservative ram.

    https://www.techspot.com/review/1829-intel-core-i5-9400f-vs-amd-ryzen-5-2600x/
     
    The 2700 should be slightly faster than the 2600X on average, and due to the lower end GPU the CPUs should be even closer than what is shown. The 1% lows on the 9400F also suffer more than the 2700 in CPU intensive games.
     
    The 2700x can be seen here matching the 9400F in almost every game while often having better 1% lows(Far Cry is the biggest exception):
    https://www.techspot.com/review/1977-amd-ryzen-1600-af/
    I don't think the 2700 would be so much slower than the 2700X to make any big difference.

    KaitouX got a reaction from MS-DOS in GPU is dead.. should I buy a 1660 super and wait for a year or two for a mega monster GPU update? (CPU is 3950x)   
    I haven't seen any review of that model, so I don't know much about it, the other models by PowerColor aren't bad, but that one doesn't seem as good and doesn't seem to have any fan stop feature.
    If low noise is important I would say that this triple fan 1660S by Gigabyte is probably going to be the best, otherwise i would get the 5700. On the driver problems, they are more likely to work without issues than not, so it shouldn't matter much, just know that if you don't want to do any troubleshooting it might be better to be prepared to return the card if you have issues.

    Both 2060 and 5700 use around ~180 W (Non-reference models) with often the 5700 using slightly more, but the 5700 is also faster, so when the talk is efficiency they are basically identical.
    The 5700/2060 are close to double the speed of the 970 on average when considering mostly modern titles, on GTA I believe it is something like 70% faster.
