Problem is which cpu, and mobo? whats a decent RAM kit?
ok, so my brand new, sealed in the box, but 5+ year old Be Quiet L8 700w PSU is ok for a 2020 build, got it!
CPU: 3 choices, ALL Ryzen's, 3600($175), 2600x($135), and finally Ryzen 5 1600F ($85)
- being told in terms of gaming 3600 = 2600x, but for running VM',s the 2600x is the better buy, but 1600F isn't on any cpu compare sites so not sure where one falls?
MOBO: 3 choices, MSI B450 Gaming Plus MAX ($105), ASRock B450M Steel Legend ($85), Asus ROG Strix B450-F ($123)
- There are so many choices, and I keep hearing about the B45 Tomahawk is the way to go, any input on how to decide?
Case - The NZXT H510 is the case I didn't know I wanted..aka it has a usb 3.0 and a USB-C connector on the front.. HOWEVER do any of my motherboards allow for this to work?
RAM - jus checked my home inventory, I do have some Crucial DDR4 2400 UDIMM's, that good or what RAM do yall recommend?
appreciate any and all input!
