Hi guys,

I was thinking of trying to get some life out of my ancient graphics card while the prices are high, I have a GTX 560 ti. Here's the build I was looking at putting it in, I was wondering if there is any issues, is the RAM going to work at the 2933 speed? Or if you can suggest anything better/needs changing? I was hoping to stay around the £500 mark.

i don't think the board is going to have issue with ram with the latest bios.

however, you would need the latest bios in order to run 2600x, and you need a cpu in order to flash the bios. so. the question is, how are you going to flash the bios on the b350 board? likely you would need find a ryzen 1xxx series cpu to flash the bios.

Thanks zyh,

Great to hear the RAM should be ok, I've heard that AMD will send out an old cpu to update the bios for 2400g's so I'd assume it'll be similar for the 2600x.

i would think so too, but it's just a hassle. i know my local store offer free bios updates for mb if you buy it from them, perhaps you can pay them a visit and see if they are willing do that when you buy mobo from them.
