  1. Hey guys looking to build my first PC and trying to do so in a very budget friendly and came across a guy on FB selling a used MSI B450 Tomahawk for $60. Messaged him and got he said it's in great condition he is just swapping over to a new ASUS board because its got more SATA ports. He doesn't have the original box or anything, but he does have the board and I/O shield. Is this worth it or should I go with a new board and get a b550 or something?
  2. Yeah, I've heard mixed reviews on the airflow with this case, but dang it looks so clean imo. Would the airflow issues be a problem given this is a pretty basic system? Hmm, that sounds like an intriguing idea, but may be a bit more trouble than I can handle since I'm so new at all this. I will likely be waiting at least a month to actually buy, so the market will likely be very different with the gen 4 out so may have more thinking to do with that happens.
  3. I would immediately only care only about basic esports type gaming, but would like to eventually play AAA games. Would a 3400g be a good CPU to eventually upgrade with a fairly good discrete graphics card in a year or so? or would I find myself having to upgrade both my cpu and gpu?

  5. Budget (including currency): sub 500 us dollars Country: US Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: gaming and basic office work Hi guys, looking to build my first pc and am wanting to keep it in a tight budget so my current build includes a Ryzen 5 3400g because I can keep it under 500 while still keeping most games playable with decent fps without the cost of a discrete gpu. I've been wanting to build a new PC for a while to make to move to PC gaming from console and I'm starting a new job soon so it seemed like a good time to finally do it. My plan right now is to build a rig with a 3400g and upgrade with a fairly good graphics card a bit down the line. Is this a good plan or is it worth it to save up the extra ~200 dollars to go with a 3600 and a budget graphics card like a rx 570 or 580? I also know that the 4th gen ryzen chips are supposed to come out in a month, should that have any bearing on my decision here?
