everything is compatible, however:

You might be able to get by with a less expensive B450 motherboard

I'd get a newer PSU than that 10+ year old VP550 design. A Corsair CX450/500/550 80+bronze psu should be similarly priced.

The RAM is fine, but I'd suggest 16 GB over 8 GB, especially since its also going to be your video memory on that machine.

for fans, I always liked Rosewill's basic 120mm fans with 74 cfm airflow. they come in black, or with blue, white, or red LEDs.

1) But my RAM HyperX Fury 8GB 3200MHz DDR4 CL16 DIMM 1Rx8 Black XMP Desktop Memory (HX432C16FB3/8) is not listed in the QVL of Asus TUF B450M-PRO GAMING & GIGABYTE B450M DS3H

2) And my M.2 SSD Kingston 250GB A2000 M.2 2280 Nvme Internal SSD PCIe Up to 2000MB/S (SA2000M8/250G) – M.2 Nvme - is not listed in the QVL of GIGABYTE B450M DS3H & MSI B450M Mortar MAX. In Asus TUF B450M-PRO GAMING there is no list for SSD's.

This gives me the compatibility confusion about the RAM & M.2 nvme SSD.
- Is that ok to have the parts that are not listed in QVL of MOBO manufacturers?
kindly give me a solution ASAP

QVL is not really a problem for most systems nowadays
Thank u
Kindly suggest me some MOBOs with following specs.

Motherboard specs:
  • 4 RAM slots (now 2x 8 gb RAM, in future 2x 8gb RAM)
  • 2 / 3 outputs
  • Atleast 1 M.2 Nvme slot
  • 1 (or)2 graphic card slot

    I'm from India. Here's my amazon link..kindly refer it for price clarity. give me some cheap & best boards. I've already spent more in 2x monitors & in this PC build.
kindly give me a solution ASAP

Thanks in advance

  • Shall I connect 3-pin (dc fan) in 4-pin (PWM) header in motherboard?
  • If yes, then shall I connect 3-pin (dc fan) in 4 pin female splitter (where 4-pin male is connected to fan header)?
thanks in advance..

1) I'm confused about picking the best MOBO - 2 combinations choose any one MOBO. & which is best in each combination?
Asus Prime B450M-A (7500 INR.) / MSI B450M PRO-VDH MAX. (7600 INR.)
Asus TUF B450M-PRO GAMING (9250 INR.) / MSI B450M Mortar MAX (9900 INR.) - also INR is the price of the MOBO.


which MOBO is a step above than other.

- https://www.asus.com/in/Motherboards/PRIME-B450M-A/specifications/
2) here it has a note(last row) as "The M.2 Socket shares bandwidth with the SATA_5/6 ports, and therefore the SATA_5/6 ports cannot be used when an M.2 device is installed. " - means?

kindly give me a solution ASAP. I need to order it - its the only part i didn't yet ordered.
thanks in advance
