hi guys,

i know some of you have already helped me find the parts for an intel build but i want to see if i will gain anything by doing an amd build only due to how good their integrated gpu is.

these are what il be using:


case: phanteks enthoo pro m tempered glass (my old case)

cpu: https://www.ebuyer.com/883795-amd-ryzen-5-3400g-am4-processor-with-radeon-rx-vega-11-graphics-yd3400c5fhbox reason i chose this because on many websites they are saying this has the best igpu

power supply :cx600m corsair (my old one)

m/b: https://www.overclockers.co.uk/asus-tuf-gaming-x570-plus-wifi-amd-am4-ddr4-x570-chipset-atx-motherboard-mb-6ds-as.html reason i chose this mobo is because i read somewhere that x570 are the latest boards and i am liking the looks of the tuf gaming series too.

rams: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/133668359597?epid=9031178827&hash=item1f1f414dad:g:pmEAAOSwEphgLilm read somewhere that the ryzen will need between 3200 and 3600mhz of ram to work efficiently

what do you think to this so far?

many thanks

By usage i meant what will you do on the pc.
PC components can work 24/7 if maintained correctly.
So for movies and a few games this is something i would choose.

I completely forgot that B550 motheboards dont support Ryzen cpu's with integrated graphics, but you will be fine with the B450 version of the tomahawk.
As far as i can remember the only major difference between B450-B550 is the PCIe 4.0 for the GPU and M.2 SSD, which isnt something i would be worried about since there is a very small difference between PCI3.0 and 4.0.
The cooler isnt necessary, but it will for sure keep it cooler while running quiter.
All parts are compatible out of the box.
Enjoy!

No need for a X570, unless you need the extra PCIe lanes for something.
Completely fine with a B550 motherboard.
What is your budget for the whole build and what are all the parts you already own?
Monitor resolution?
Usage?

thank you, will have a look at b550 boards now.

i only need cpu, mobo and rams.

as for budget, i dont have one.

i think my tv is 60 hz

when you say usage, do you mean how long i go on my pc or what will i be doing with the pc?

my pc stays on at 12pm till 3am. il be using the pc for watching films, playing on few games.

many thnaks for that

that is alot cheaper than i could have done it.

also i didnt know with some amd mobo, you cant use a cpu with integrated graphics.

as for the cooler, i have the v5 vetroo which is quite good.

the only thing i compared was the integrated graphics so i compared the 11500 and the ryzen 5 3400g, the 11500 was alot powerful than the 3400g.

do you know what would be the next step up from the 3400g and still have the same integrated graphics?
You can only get it in prebuilts atm. Once it goes retail it's probably going to sell like hot cakes.
