first time build help

Thats a B450 board witch is a good board I think its just PCIE for the m.2

B450 are very good if you do not want to pay for the x570 ones. but you wont get PCIE 4.0

 

PCIE 4.0 is not needed but like I said its future proofing. If you don't play to get a next gen card any time soon like next 2-3 years id stick with a cheapr board. id get a b450 over others personally

soooo basically im building pc for the first time and im impatient so ive already got a few things i would love to know if what i want and have got will work together. seen a lot of things contradicting things about these parts and also im just a bit confused. these are the parts:

 

 

ASrock b450m pro 4

team T force vulcan Z (2x8gb) 3200mhz

Ryzen 3 3200g    (got already)

WD green sata m.2   (got already)

gigabyte geforce 1050ti oc LP (got already)

500w power supply and case (already have)

Iirc on that board you need to install the ram in a2&b2 slot (it's marked near the ram socket or read the manual). If not the xmp profiles won't reach 3200mhz.

sure it looks fine but personally if you have a ryzen 3 why not get a x570 board? it will help you in the long run.

 

x570 paired with ryzen 3 unlocks PCIE 4.0, rn you can get up to 64gb speeds on a m.2 pcie SSD vs the normal 32gb/

then when next gen cards are released you can upgrade to it and take full advantage of that pcie 4.0

the boards will tell you in the manual and usually its marked on the board its self what slots you need to use.

Its just called dual channel

Yeah, but sometimes 1st timer missed these things and complained why the ram won't reach the advertised speed.

3200g is zen+ so only supports pcie 3.0, so I think you would need to upgrade the CPU later. I do agree though that X570 would be the most future proof option

ah thanks for that info. Maybe its fine then. But I think if you have the money to future proof as much as you can why not? I see he has a $80 board so maybe hes just doing budget build. but the future will thank him big time

they can be hard to find right now for stock wise. but I recommend the $200 price range for a "budget" one. I know its expensive but its still cheap for a decent x570 board. 

My board was $330 and its still considered not the best x570 board but its still very good.

 

I recommend the gigabye aorus elite for the cheaper boards or the x570 TUF. Id stay away from the MSI gaming edge.

Np, just keep in mind that at that speed is not jedec standard hence the notation of oc(overclock) speed, and as with any overclock nothing is guaranteed. There might be a chance that the memory isn't stable at that speed. But don't let it hold you down, with good quality memory the risk is quite low.

is it really necessary to overclock your memory, ive heard speed of the ram is important when going with an amd cpu, something to do with the infinity link or something, im currently an intel guy atm so i dont know much about amd systems.

In your case(zen 2) it's something to focus on but not necessarily a game breaker. A lot of different variable affects this but the main rule is if it's stable, higher speed means higher performance.
