Hi there.
I am planning on building a budget pc for a friend of mine. He has around 470€ for the build and it will be used mainly for gaming. I was thinking of this build.
I have a couple of doubts though. My friend does not intend to OC, therefore I thought about the MSI A320M-A Pro Max. However I do not fully know this chipset, is there any other disadvantages other than the fact that you can't OC the CPU?
What do you think? Have you got any suggestions (components that I should change)?

 

 

 

case - ATX Kolink Castle

It's a much better motherboard, and 2x4 ram instead of 1x8 helps a lot. You don't have a case included in your build.

the case is in the bottom it does not exist in pcpartpicker.

I do not mind sacrificing the 1x8, it will be upgraded to dual chanel later. 

what is wrong with the mobo?

Very bad vrm, you can't run more than a quad core on it and can't really overclock. If you ever plan on upgrading the cpu, which is at the moment ryzen's biggest advantage, you'd have to change the motherboard.

I understand however I would prefer to keep the 1650s and the 2200g even if that meant sacrificing the ability to upgrade.

What is the cheapest mobo you would reccomend?

you can totally sacrifice them. 1650S is no faster than an RX 580, 2200G is just a 1200 with iGPU that you won't be using anyway

The Ryzen 3 2200g is based on first gen architecture. 

AMD's naming scheme is slightly wierd.

About the rx 580, isn’t it better going for the 1650super? Just because the 1650s is newer, and therefore would be supported by nvidea for longer.

On the other hand, rx580s go around for about $100 a pop. They both are pretty much similar in performance.

You can get rx580 for the price that I mentioned above from sites like eBay/AliExpress with free international shipping.
