Hye, i have recently build this PC (Core i5 10400f + gigabyte h410 h v3 + corsair 3200 mhz + gtx 960) i do play casual games (GTA V, call of duty and battlefield), internet surfing and watching movies. Graphics card will be replaced in near future.

1) My question is whether all this combination s fine or should i change something in the system.

2) One of my friends told me that i5 10400f does not support 3200 mhz so will this be a bottleneck or ram will work just fine at 2666 mhz

3) is the mother board gigabyte h410 h v3 fine for the core i5 10400f.

Please guide

Please let me know the motherboard i should buy........though I don't plan to overclock
You cannot overclock, the 10400, an B560 doesn't allow it either, other than allowing ram to run at rated speed. DDR4's default is 2133, and any XMP rating is considered an overclock. The problem with the poor VRM boards is they can limit your turbo boost frequencies. Asrock B560m Pro4 is probably the cheapest I would recommend. You will need to go into the bios, in that board, to disable power limits, to get max performance, iirc.

  1. It's "fine" in the sense that it'll work.
  2. I believe your friend is correct & H410 memory speeds cap out at 2666MHz for anything <i7. Check what your kit is running at..... will likely default to 2133 or 2400MHz unless you set it in BIOS
  3. Refer #1
At this point, you have the platform. The time to question was before buying. While there would be measurable gains if you were able to run 3200MHz etc, the cost involved now to return or sell the board and buy something else isn't going to be proportionate to the gains.

Upgrading your GPU when the market permits would be of more benefit in gaming that anything to do with that base platform.

I also have a ryzen 5600 G and a option to exchange this as well it will cost me a bit but i can

1) should I change the motherboard

2) if i do change the motherboard will i get decent performance in comparison with ryzen 5600 G

The 10400, with a low end Z490, Z590, or semi decent B560 would be faster, than a 5600g, when using a high end dedicated graphics card. In your current configuration, with any high end gpu, your gaming performance will be worse than a Ryzen 3300x, on a cheap B450 board, with 3200mhz ram. The plus side to the 5600g is better integrated graphics, should your GPU fail, and better upgrade options, despite now also being a dead platform.

Not a full parts list.
How much ram is it?
What storage do you have?
What PSU do you have?
2) One of my friends told me that i5 10400f does not support 3200 mhz so will this be a bottleneck or ram will work just fine at 2666 mhz
Ram will run at 2666mhz.
3) is the mother board gigabyte h410 h v3 fine for the core i5 10400f.
It's fine for low end board.

My vendor is offering me a msi B560 pro e at a good exchange price. If I go for this am I decent against 5600g
