  1. Thanks for your help. That said, I have a question. Would it be worth getting a Ryzen 3000 series, because some sellers of that motherboard have given it a BIOS update, or is it better to stick with the current CPU? Currently I think the specs are not that much more impressive but I could be wrong. Thanks!
  2. Hello. I am new to PC building and am currently planning my first build. I have a PCPartPicker list for it and I would like to know if everything I need is on here and nothing is missing or might cause problems. Also if you could, could you give me any feedback in any places on how to make it better that would be appreciated. By the way, my "theme" for this build is Gaming PC on a budget. Here's the list: PCPartPicker Part List Type Item Price CPU AMD Ryzen 5 2600 3.4 GHz 6-Core Processor $117.59 @ OutletPC CPU Cooler Cooler Master MasterLiquid ML120L RGB 66.7 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler $54.89 @ OutletPC Thermal Compound Arctic Silver 5 High-Density Polysynthetic Silver 3.5 g Thermal Paste $5.98 @ OutletPC Motherboard Gigabyte B450M DS3H Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard $72.88 @ OutletPC Memory Patriot Signature Premium 16 GB (1 x 16 GB) DDR4-2666 Memory $54.99 @ Newegg Storage Team L5 LITE 3D 1 TB 2.5" Solid State Drive $89.99 @ Newegg Video Card MSI Radeon RX 570 8 GB ARMOR OC Video Card $144.99 @ Newegg Case Fractal Design Define Mini C TG MicroATX Mid Tower Case $90.02 @ Walmart Power Supply EVGA BQ 600 W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-modular ATX Power Supply $54.98 @ Newegg Monitor Dell P1911 19.0" 1440x900 Monitor $60.99 @ Amazon Keyboard Redragon K552 Wired Gaming Keyboard $32.99 @ Amazon Prices include shipping, taxes, rebates, and discounts Total (before mail-in rebates) $850.29 Mail-in rebates -$70.00 Total $780.29 Generated by PCPartPicker 2019-10-25 19:49 EDT-0400
  3. Oh yeah oops. But yeah I might get the 2600 just so I don't have to worry about BIOS.
  4. That's why I gave you the board I want to use. Do you know if it can do it on this MB?
  5. I am planning a build and plan to use the "Gigabyte B450M DS3H Micro ATX AM4" Motherboard. While it does support the AM4 socket, if I buy it through Amazon it needs a BIOS update to work with the CPU I plan to use, which is the AMD Ryzen 5 2600. Is it possible to flash a BIOS update without a CPU in it and how do I do it? Thank you!
  6. I am kinda new to this whole PC building thing, so I would like to ask, can you use a slightly smaller or larger board, so long as it is micro-ATX?
  7. I have a Compaq Presario Media Center SR1950NX that I would like to upgrade. Upgrading the CPU and RAM are possible, but would not get me a much better PC capable of running most games. This is where my question comes in. The motherboard is a micro-ATX form factor that is 9.6 in x 9.6 in. I am wondering if it would be possible to put another motherboard of the same form factor in and still have it work. Thank you and have a great day.
