I need to change my motherboard and I thought that buying a new CPU along with it would be a good idea. At first I wanted to upgrade to a Ryzen 5 3600 and a B550 motherboard, but I changed my mind when I found out that the 10400f is like 50 - 60 dollars cheaper where I live. Now i want to buy the 10400f and a 100 dollar motherboard. Is this a good decision right now, and if so, what would be a good motherboard for that price?
Specs:
Ryzen 3 2300x
RX 480 8GB
8x2 3000Mhz Corsair Vengeance
A320-M S2H
240GB SSD
1TB HDD
Intertech 620w PSU
