Best budget motherboard for Ryzen 7 3700x

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I'm building a PC for gaming and some some editing and some light 3D modeling. I am wondering what the best budget motherboard for the Ryzen 3700x or if a different cpu would be better?

My other specs are:

Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 DRAM 3200MHz

EVGA RTX 2060 KO Ultra Gaming, 6GB GDDR6

EVGA 750 N1, 750W psu

Well, define "budget"..?

 

Also, get a different PSU. A 3700X and 2060 won't pull even 50% of 750W, and the EVGA N1 is a time bomb.


Desktop: Intel Core i9-9900K | be quiet! Dark Rock Pro 4 | ASUS Strix Z390-F | G.Skill Trident Z Neo 2x16GB, 3200MHz 14-14-14-34 | EVGA GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER XC Ultra | Corsair RM650x | Fractal Design Define R6

Laptop: 2018 Apple MacBook Pro 13" (i5-8259U | 8GB LPDDR3 | 512GB NVMe)

id swap out that psu its as stated a bomb

and i would get other ram perhaps TEAM Vulcan, G.Skill Ripjaws V or Crucial Ballistix 
i say change ram because binning on them have been really inconsistent

for the motherboard for the lower end id say a GIGABYTE B550 DS3H
mid:MSI B550 Tomohawk/Aorus Elite

I have had fantastic reliability out of the EVGA BR series. Have a friend used one for 2-3years never an issue. Also Linus has been using EVGA with his budget builds. But I do agree there is better psu's you could buy but if you can't afford a more expensive unit I speak from experience with the EVGA BR units they are pretty reliable

1100 USD?

(or swap the 5600XT out for a 2060 if you need CUDA)

 

Really though, I'd wait a few more weeks before purchasing the parts and putting the system together.

AMD is revealing their new Zen 3 CPUs on October 8th and RDNA2 GPUs on the 28th, and will likely have a CPU (probably the 3700X's successor) and a GPU in the ~$300 ballpark, therefore potentially getting a lot more for your money.

BR and reliable dont go on in the same sentence especially with the parts he has my friend has a BR and its already coil whinning 

and just because EVGA is popular doesnt mean theyre reliable

 

when looking at psus brand doesnt matter that much

I completely disagree I have used the 450w for over a year it was whisper quiet so is my friends he has the 550w. I trust them so much I decided to save the money on my new build and get the 600w br for my new build. I know there is better psu's no question about that but these have served many well. Out of user reviews on amazon it has a 4.7 out 5 stars from over 1k users so most people who have bought them seem to also have had a good experience.

If it comes with the right BIOS, and I push mine to the upper limits (140 sustained AMPs via overclock) and was able to get the board pushed up a tier on the LTT tier list by proving it out ;) Long as its ready for the right Ryzen series, cheapest board available for that CPU Id do all day long

from my understanding the bios will be up to the board maker if they will support 4000 series cpus and seeing as they are not out yet dont know i can only really see board makers doing it for the high end b450s and x470s if they choose to at all you have to remember that they want to make money

Ryzen 7 3700x is supported on this board already, if it has the proper BIOS update.  OP didn't mention an upgrade path just cheapest mobo for said CPU.  4000 series are still on the Zen2 architecture as they are just mobile variants (basically) but you are correct if they intend to launch support for it its up to the board manufacturer (but they already support Zen2 so Im betting it will be supported, the 4000 series APUs)
