Atx or Micro-Atx?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I had a question... 

 

I want to build a gaming pc for around 900 euro's (Netherlands) and I was wondering if I should go for the B550m aorus pro or the B550 aorus pro, because the B550m will save me around 50 euros, but will it have an impact on the performance?

As long as you don't need the extra expansion slots or features the ATX version offers, you'll get the same performance out of a mATX board.


Main: AMD Ryzen 7 1700X, Nvidia GTX 780, 16 GB 3000 MT/s DDR4 Fedora 32 x86_64

Secondary: Intel Xeon X5670, Nvidia GTX 660, 24 GB 1333 MT/s DDR3 Windows 10 Home x86_64

Server: Intel Xeon X5670, 60 GB 1333 MT/s DDR3-R Ubuntu Server 20.04.1 LTS x86_64

Laptop: Intel Core i5-3320M, 16 GB 1600 MT/s DDR3 Fedora 32 x86_64

Generally micro atx only gives up pcie expansion slots and is a great way to save money.

 

I would suggest looking at the MSI B550 Tomahawk or Mortar.

If you want a cheap board thats still excellent for nearly all systems, I would suggest the MSI B550 pro vdh, ASRock B550m Pro 4, MSI B550 Bazooka or MSI B550 A pro

what are you powering? because these are two different boards (at least in terms of the vrm). but the matx should handle an 8 core and even a 12 core just fine.

budget for a board and what are you powering?


Fun Fact: The Meshify c is the best case to ever exist.

Do you mean CPU and GPU? If so I'm using the Ryzen 5 3600 with the Sapphire Pulse RX 5600 XT

yea, both will power it just fine. 

as for b550 as a whole, the aorus pro is great, the matx is worse but will power a 6 core just fine, also consider the mortar and the a pro which are good.

Thank you so much! 

 

What do you mean with "just fine"? Will it run OK or great? (if you understand what I'm saying)
