Cheap am4 motherboard?

Vod
 Share

Hello! 

So I'm building a new pc, but I don't know which mobo I should buy, because the budget for my pc is low, the budget for the mobo will be around 60 euros (around 70 usd). 

And is buying used mobos a good idea, someone told me buying used mobos will crash the whole pc because of the different parts being used Than before but I don't really think that's true.

Fully wrong.

 

A used B350 is fine, but new prices are pretty good. AMD is launching new products soon, so you might be able to get more bang for your buck in less than a month, see if you can stick it out.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

the MSI A-PRO B350 is a great choice. A little bit over your budget (About 100$) but it works great.

Why don't you mention the online stores you may buy from? Then I and others could suggest products based on what's available to you. Maybe even mention total budget and what parts you already have or plan to reuse and we may be able to suggest builds from the stores you wish to work with.

 

Also, Croatia is not exactly a third world country, you should be able to buy from an online seller like Amazon.co.uk or Amazon.de - they'll ship the products from EU warehouses so you don't pay for customs taxes and they get to you within 1-2 weeks, and you have the same warranty as buying from your country.

They also combine shipping costs if you order several products - for a motherboard shipping shouldn't be more than around 10$ (in UK pounds)

  • 4 weeks later...

So i'm building a new pc.

But I don't know witch mobo to use.

I have an Ryzen 5 2400g (if you want to know why i got it before the mobo its because i found it for a good deal)

I live in germany, and because there I live in an really small town and there aren't any tech shops areound, I buy for parts using ebay.de

My budget is around 65 euros.

Some boards that may be good : Gigabyte b450 ds3h and the Gigabyte b450 s2h

 

Forgot to mention, but will I be able to upgrade to an ryzen 7 on an b450 board?

Yeah. get the DS3H. I've put together a exact same build for my father a couple of weeks back. And it's working out great. And yes techanilly you can upgrade to ryzen 7 on that mobo. Altrough I woudln't recommend it because the mobo has an terrible VRM.

Yes. It has great features for it's price. If you won't overclock your fine with the VRM. Altrough still don't stick a R7 in there. Because it pulls around 20 to 40 watts more

Thanks and one more thing.

Am i dumb for going with the r5 2400g instead of the r5 1600?
I found the r5 2400g for an really good deal and i bought it new for less than an r5 1600x would go used.

 

I'm worried I made the wrong desicion because I looked up the specs and saw that the r5 2400g has 4 cores and 8 threads while the r5 1600 has 6 cores and 12 threads

Gaming wise you won't see a difference. But if you stream you maybe start to experience a small bottleneck

B450M S2H or B450M DS3H?
Why?

This is probably the last post about motherboard for me, because I'll be buying a mobo today

S2H if you plan to use integrated graphics and your monitor has only vga (+ d-sub connector)

 

DS3H for +2 memory slots, +1 pci-e x16 (running at x4)

 

Everything else is pretty much the same, not great but then again for the total price...

Ok, I'll be going for the s2h because the monitor I'm using rn doesn't have any hdmi ports, I don't really need +2 memory slots or +1 pci-e 16
