I am used to building Intel gaming systems. Now I am thinking of building a Ryzen gaming system. However, I don't know anything about Ryzen CPU's.
I have just purchased RX 580 8gb. I just need to know what MOBO and Ryzen CPU will work great with the GPU for games.

This will be for my personal gaming PC for at home. I was looking somewhat cheap. Holidays drained my wallet. Just looking for some options. I am content with decent graphics from high to ultra settings like i usually am. I don't care about 4k cuz i only have a Dell U3011 monitor. It is 27inch and it can do 2560x1600 at 60hz.
I tend to make my PC's small. For example all of my puters at home (one for me, wife and 2 kids) are mini-itx builds. I am ok with micro-atx. Its just that ill have to get another case. All I have are itx cases.
 
The biggest issue with ITX vs Micro is the case and board price as opposed to each other. You could readily make the savings up for the case price if I don't have something fancy in mind.

To pair with that card, probably be looking Ryzen 5, B450 motherboard, 3200mhz RAM...nice NVME....

Ya that's true. Just looking for some options before jumping into it. ATM I am open to anything. If I have to get mid to full tower case I can do that. Just trying to see what I can get for decent performance with the GPU.
Sorry for the late reply. The holiday's and life in general is crazy right now so I don't have too much time to research the Ryzen chips until later in time. Thanks again for the help.
