For the most part what bothers me is that X570 boards are so expensive. He's not interested in any fancy features such as overclocking performance but according to pcpartpicker all the cheaper chipsets aren't compatible without having to mess with updating the bios

 

Thanks in advance

It's 2020 stop using mechanical drives, next-gen games will almost certainly be unplayable from mechanical drives.

Also think that monitor is more than what that graphics card can deal with, unless you're just playing CS:GO or something.

the B450 MAX boards don't need a bios update to support the zen 2 CPUs, plus the X570-A Pro is really shitty.

I'd recommend getting a 1/2TB Hard Drive. Certain games do not need SSD speeds. Also, you don't wanna waste SSD space on pictures, videos, word docs etc. Rn I have 1.5TB SSD space and 2TB HDD space and it's great, I sometimes record gameplay if something funny is happening and I do it in 4K 60, so I need the 2TB storage. OP may not do so but 2TB of HDD space is always nice because it allows for flexibility while not being expensive

I see. In that case, would this be a good alternative?

Honestly, if you don't need PCIe 4.0(most people don't), a MSI B450 Tomahawk is sufficient, unless you're going for Ryzen 9.
