why are you importing?

 

also Bazooka V2. 

 

 

like most of the time it is cheaper to buy local webstores. 

You can find hardware in my country since most people will either buy an overpriced Apple laptop or AiO or a Windows laptop. Very few people build a PC.

Yes but they will only sell prebuilt systems. That's how it works in most African countries. I live in Senegal and I buy my PC parts only when I or a relative travels to Europe or the US since PC hardware is super overpriced here.

Hmm wouldn't I need a first gen Ryzen CPU to update the BIOS?

Depends on when the board was bought or if the BIOS has been updated. 

 

Worst case you order a bootkit from AMD. Which costs the shipping. Just return the CPU afterwards.

I think I'll just stick with the Bazooka. I don't need advanced features, just durability.

Check out this picture of the Bazooka: A1+aFfZCs0L._AC_SL1500_.jpg

 

As you can see the m.2 slot is right under the PCI port. Would I be able to make both a (2-slot) GPU and a m.2 SSD fit?

yep, the SSD doesn't come high enough to even hit the gpu

Which board are you referring to?

the B450-A Pro

 

tbh the two mATX boards are electrically the same so no objective advantages or disadvantages for the more expensive one, it comes to whether you need the extra ports (I assume the Bazooka has more) and PCB colour. The ATX board has SOC VRM heatsink so if you will be running an APU it's useful, otherwise it's again up to personal preferences.

That's interesting because there isn't much of a difference between the two microATX boards in terms of ports. As of now there's a €5 difference between the two but I would save them if they only give an aesthetic advantage.

Here's the "comparison" between the two: https://www.msi.com/comparison/motherboard/?unique=id1557963632237&compare_list=["QjQ1ME0tQkFaT09LQS1WMg==","QjQ1ME0tUFJPLVZESC1QTFVT"]

No but the price reflects that and thus that is my point. Objectively this is how everything is priced, bar RGB covered products LMAO 🤣🤣🤣🤣

Both solid boards for less than 100$

Agreed. I use a b450 pro4 and couldn't be happier with the quality
