Should i go for b450 or save more budget for ram and buy a320. I have 1500kn(200euros) and in croatia 1600 costs 800kn (107). Now i have x4 860k so i will need new ram as well.So b450 costs 480kn and a320 costs 370kn. Hyperx fury ram 8gb ddr4 2400mhz costs 280kn and there ram TRANSCEND 8GB DDR4 2666MHZ if hyperx is better can you make me understand diffrences and what should i buy. Or i just need to add more money. Tell me the answer plz. Sorry forn bad english. Thanks for understanding.

B450, ofc since it will allow you to overclock and often times it has better power delivery on the board compared to the A320. In fact the A320 is considered the bottom of the barrel chipset.

You might want to pass on the links to the B450 chipset boards you're looking at.

Given how you've structured the post, I'm wondering what you currently have in your system...? List their specs like so:
CPU:
Motherboard:
Ram:
SSD/HDD:
GPU:
PSU:
Chassis:
OS:

We will also need to know the age of the PSU in case you want to reuse the unit.

It's not a bad board.But look up reviews.A lot of gigabyte boards has heat issues(although that board seems like it will run cool)but best to look up reviews.1Turn off though are that it only have 2 ram slots.Not a problem if you just game but not so much if you video edit.

Another option are the msi b450 tomahawk.It's most prob the best budget board on the market today.

Do you have to buy in Croatia? Can you not order from another European country and just get shipped?
I am in the UK and have bought parts from Amazon.de because they have been cheaper even with shipping.

I would save more money and increase your budget first.
Otherwise you make too many compromises and something has to give.
Wait a while longer to save a bigger budget and get a good B450 board, a 2nd gen Ryzen and a good 3200 RAM kit.
