Hi gang, settled on r5 3600 CPU. Trying to nail down a MB but im a little lost. Mostly do rocket league, VMware and other tech stuff.. Would love to go sub $150 with the following features.

  • Dual M.2 ( willing to sacrifice this )
  • PCI 4 ( do i even need this ?, might upgrade GPU to 2070ish level soon if black friday has a good deal )
  • 3600mhz+ ram support
  • x570 ( again, do i need this ? )
I guess thats it, i dont need to future proof too hard, i plan in the next year or 2 building a high end PC, im just trying to get a decent computer up and running till i get back to work and stuff. Mostly doing studying, IT labs and like i said, rocket league which i have a 144hz monitor coming for.


Thanks so much. Stay safe out there !

MSI Tomahawk b450 Max is still a perfect MB for 6core Ryzen and will get support for Ryzen 5000. That should keep you running till next generation.

Following along as I'm in the same boat! Decided on the 3600/3600x (depending on deals I can get on Prime Day/5000 series release/Black Friday) and not sure what MOBO to go with!

Thanks so much, this was one of the ones i was looking at. A second opinion is so helpful. At this point i just want to see whats gonna come out for prime day then order a monitor and my stuff. So tonight.

Anyway, thanks again!
