B350 or B450?

Go to solution Solved by GoldenLag,

btw. RX580 8 GB is as fast and cheaper than the gtx 1060 atm in AU.

B450 board. it is the only board that is ensured to have a new enough BIOS.

also ASUS is generally bad value untill you get into the higher end boards. 

So here's the story. I am planning on building a mini ITX build and I've sourced my parts using pcpartpicker (AU). I already finalized all the parts, except that I would like to see if my local computer parts store have some of the parts I need. Now, I chose a Gigabyte B450 AORUS I (https://www.shoppingexpress.com.au/buy/gigabyte-b450-i-aorus-pro-wifi-amd-am4-itx-gaming/GA-B450-I-AORUS-PRO-WIFI) to which the guys there didn't have. However, he offered me an ASUS ROG STRIX B350-I for the same price of AU$189. Personally I trust asus products, but the b450 chipset on the gigabyte board has better specs AFAIK. Should I take up the guys offer to get the strix board or stick to the b450 gigabyte board?

 

I'll be running a ryzen 7 2700x with a gtx 1060 6gb card plus 16gb of DDR4-3200 ram, just to let you guys know.

For the GPU I found a second hand one for $350 which was barely used as the seller upgraded to a 1080 almost immediately.

I already have a monitor. No its not a freesync nor G.sync. Just a normal Dell SE2147HG 24" monitor just because my laptop screen is dead and very expensive to fix.

ok, layed some options in front of you, but if the gtx 1060 benefits your workload. 

 

i it doesnt i would highly recommend going for the cheaper option.

 

unless you have allready bought the used 1060 6 GB

I already agreed to meet the seller tomorrow, tho you may have a point with the RX580. I'll try to find some alternatives and see what happens.
