hi guys,

I'm planning to build a Ryzen (mid range-ish) 1080p gaming build. In my country, the R5 1400 + ASRock AB350M Pro4 and an Asus WiFi card is exactly the same price with a R5 1500X + ASRock Fatal1ty AB350 Gaming-ITX/ac. I need WiFi, so what should be a better option.

My thoughts:
mATX: I get 4 RAM slots, 'better' WiFi speeds
ITX: I get a better processor

GPU: I should be getting the 1060 3GB version.
Usage: primarily gaming and some photo editing in Lightroom

Thank you!

I think if pricing is the same, definitely the second pair, but if you can spare the diff between 1600 and 1500X, get 1600 instead since you are doing video editing.The extra 2 cores will help you in the long run :)

Thanks but its more like this, but in my country, both options below are the same price. My concern is more towards either going the mATX or ITX route.

mATX option
