A budget would be nice, and I recommend upgrading from 8GB to 16GB of RAM (the days of games running properly on 8GB of RAM are numbered).

In search of the future, new tech, and exploring the universe! All under the cover of anonymity!

What kind of budget are we looking at? What do you mean by "broad graphic connection"? Go with an MSI B450, like the Pro Carbon.

Do you care what video card you get? What monitor do you have, is it freesync?

 

Don't worry about the display ports on the mobo, you just don't use them. All motherboard utilize then except for the high end ones. 

 

Here's the best freesync build you can get under $1k. If you're only using a 1080p monitor then you would be fine getting an RX 580/590 and if you don't care about freesync you can get a GTX 1070/1070 TI.

it doesnt work that way..... only works for 2200G &2400G

for ryzen 2600 you must get a graphics card first and use card's !!, otherwise just no monitor signal

The 1700X is not a better processor. Unless you're doing something that needs the two extra cores, there just isn't one reason to choose the 1700X over the 2600.

Not much gaming performance difference but you gain 2 cores for future proof.

Don't you think games will start taking advantage of more cores in the next few years?
