@MuffinHD Here is the total with good ram and the asrock board (which is perfectly fine). Don't know how much shipping is on that site though but I got the part prices from that site. https://1a.lv/order/shopping_cart?content=MzY2MDa3sDK0NjE0tTAwAjEsjM3MzYAMAA%3D%3D

Hello!

So I have a pretty old pc and when I'm playing FiveM, my processor can't handle the server resources, it runs at 100% almost all the time, so I wanted to upgrade my pc a little bit(not willing to spend much $). GPU I guess is pretty ok for me - MSi GTX 750Ti/OC 2GB.

So I just ordered:

  • AMD Ryzen 3 1200 (Old one : AMD Athlon X4 860K)
  • Corsair Vengeance LPX 8GB 2400MHz (1 stick)
  • MSI A320M PRO-E

and I started wondering about the ram... I got 1x8gb and I was thinking if it would make ANY problems with the pc - like lower fps than if I had 2x4.

2400mhz is a little slow for Ryzen and it's always good when building a new PC to get a 2 stick kit of ram, Dual channel is much better than single channel. Might of been a good idea to get a cheaper B450 motherboard as well, that way you could upgrade to one of the newer ryzen chips or a 2000 series chip in the future without having to replace the motherboard.

If you ask for a Mid Tower case recommend, I will 90% of the time recommend the Fractal Design Meshify C or S2.

avoid A320, even cheap B350 and B450 boards are much much better. 


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

How about ASROCK B450M-HDV or Gigabyte B450M S2H?

So what do you guys say about the 

  • Same Ryzen 3 1200
  • Crucial Ballistix Sport LT 4GB 2666MHz (2 sticks)
  • Gigabyte B450M S2H

This seems better, right?

I live in Latvia btw.

 

(If it's okey for you - https://www.1a.lv/datoru_komponentes_tikla_produkti this is the shop. Maybe you can create a cart with the parts you think are better in this shop.)

I dont know if Amazon.de ships to Latvia but if you give me a retailer that does I can see if I can find better prices, pretty sure the B450m S2H is the same as the DS3H if not the DS3H is the way to go I've used it for a few budget builds and never had an issue, also depending on the price difference go for 3000mhz ram.

 

*edit* changed partpicker list to Euros instead of Pounds because I'm dumb.

In the shop I provided earlier(my country's shop) the 

  • ASROCK B450M-HDV is for 55€,
  • the GIGABYTE B450M S2H is for 57
  • GIGABYTE B450M DS3H(the one you provided) is for 68

So would I be good with the asrock, or I should rather get the DS3H for 68€?
