HI guys i got a 220$ budget For cpu mobo and ram, i want to build a ryzen 1600 af + mobo + 16gb of ram at 3000mhz or more, dont worry about gpu psu hdd/ssd or case, i already got a case, a hdd the PSU and Will be buying the gpu, just need help with those 3 parts, i need help deciding Ram and mobo, there is a ton of b450 mobo which i dont know which is better than the other there are Asus gigabyte msi asrock etc, i dont care too much is the mobo being used. Please share your tips and knowledge

I saw an aorus b450m used at 70$ but then i saw an asrock For 52 used, seems like the aorus is the way to go because being better all the way than the (future proof) asrock but with the 20$ i saved For purchasing the asrock i can Buy an ssd, so i don't know what to do, i got 220$ of budget any input would be helpful

I just used these parts in my upgrade, the RAM is on the QVL and just easily works at 3000 with the profiles in the BIOS.
I have my 1500X overclocked and stable at 4.0 on this motherboard with no issues

*edited just to better word, just made it sound almost like it ONLY ran at 3000.

Thanks bro but i didnt explain me correctly, i have 220$ For the cpu mobo and ram but thanks for sharing your knowledge I'm considering that ASRock
 
I don't think u will find a better deal here. I would suggest going for the 1600 AF. 3200MHz RAM and use whatever is left to get a B450 board.

I believe this leaves u with 85$ for the 1600 AF. Although I could not find it on PCPartPicker or Amazon.

Well you are right, also I don't know I think I will go for the aorus b450m used because seems better quality than asrcok, I never had buyed an used motherboard from Amazon but it should do the work

It's back at Amazon for $85, but never shows up on PCPartPicker: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07XTQZJ28
