Question Best in price/value components for MSI B450 + Ryzen 5 2600

Sep 9, 2019
Hello! What memory, stuff like a cpu fan, a power supply and a case would you recommend for build based on:

MSI B450-A PRO ATX AM4 Motherboard
AMD Ryzen 5 2600 3.4 GHz 6-Core Processor
XFX Radeon RX 570 8 GB Video Card

best in price/value.


CPU comes with an adequate fan.
Best price/value on memory is going to be a low latency DDR4 3000Mhz kit (You would run it at 2933Mhz)

Case is subjective, but really anything mid-tower will do. Cougar MX330 is about the minimum I typically recommend.

Power supply is not a component to skimp on. If you have to be cheap, something like a Corsair CX550 would be my recommendation. EVGA B2 or B3 models, Seasonic 520W or 620W.

You can substitute an 2x4GB memory kit if needed.
