You enable them too much.  They'll never grow up to be responsible adults if you keep hand holding them 🙂

Thing is even explaining how to choose a board is tedious... Not many people can watch Buildzoid for long 😂

If you want info, we can help.  But it kind of felt like "here, find me a motherboard, bitches" with the no comments or information or even a "hey guys, can you help me out?".

 

If I did a "I suck at cooking" and mentioned steak my girlfriend would NOT get her apron on and get to making me dinner.  No sir.

 

No worries, he got you a good one.

hahahaha best way to learn about motherboards is watching a LOT of ltt.  so you learn about the more compicated things like power phases, pcb trace quality and chipsets, with their exclusive features!

Motherboard choice is just "You want wifi or not?" This one has wifi and bluetooth in it, and a lot people use at least bluetooth.

What is wrong with that psu? Is it because it’s only rated gold?

The MSI B550 Gaming Plus is a great MB for the 5600x but is limited with not having WI-FI but for a budget-based build would be fantastic =]

The one you listed was 80+ Bronze actually, and isn't even modular at all which does make a difference. This'll help explain ratings on psu's. https://www.tomshardware.com/news/what-80-plus-levels-mean,36721.html
