motherboard help

I need to have both wi-fi and Bluetooth support on the system. was planning to use an b550 a pro but can' figure out if it has Bluetooth. And to confuse myself even more I am going to be running Linux mint. here is the parts list. Can anyone tell me if it's going to all play nicely or if im going to have to change something. Am going to buy this stuff tomorrow so i just need to make sure it's going to work.

It doesn't, but you can use an E-key M.2 slot for a wifi card. I use a USB dongle myself. 1200mbps and rarely has issues. The thing about onboard wifi is that if it has issues or breaks, you have to RMA / replace the whole board. Better to compartmentalize it modular-like. Less problem if something has an issue.

OP: My PC cuts off and crashes. Is the 1000W PSU enough?  ME: 1000W is plenty, PSU or system board could be faulty. Get both tested.

OP: I don't think so, both parts were purchased last week.        😒  Why bother asking if you second-guess the advice?

I'm thinking about it now and, I don't need Bluetooth. the only thing that I have that is Bluetooth is some headphones. but dealing with windows Bluetooth for so long, I rarely use it and just plug them in with a wire. And for Wi-Fi, as long as that dongle works (and is relatively fast), I'm going to use it. going to try and leave the m.2 open for the future. 512gb SSD is good, but only a start.

Forgot to mention my dongle does Bluetooth too, and it works quite well. 3.0 or 3.2 ports for best results. I've had two card-based deals and they both failed. My USB dongle works flawlessly. I think the only time it has issues is when there is a signal problem to start with. Bluetooth connects every time and files transfer quick.

 

This isn't the exact one I have, but one much like it, and it's a little faster too, I think. I have mine on a USB extension cable run up under the machine from the rear so that the PC case shrouds and protects it but it still gets good signal.

@Novasandfriends

What processor do you plan to use? And you can get larger M.2s than 256 or 512GB. I have a 1TB myself. And I think some models offer 2TB. I prefer the SN570 WD Blue series. Hands down best bang for the buck IMO. Some people really like the Samsung 960 / 970 but I've seen some issues with those.

Ryzen 5 5600g for video editing. Will get a real GPU in the future. I know that I can get a larger SSD but don't have the money at the moment.

I'm trying to get off the i3111g4 at the moment. Witch has been annoying to use for the 6 months. Picked it out for the family because of the price and it having a SSD in it. There was a massive laptop shortage in my area at the time. family was using a massive Celeron based laptop with an old hardrive in it that took 5 min to boot. They didn't want to fix it and just get a new laptop.
