It got into my head that I want to get/build a new desktop pc, haven’t had one in 15 years.
I don’t want to go overboard with spending and I can’t decide yet what motherboard to get.
I’ve “heard” MSI are kinda problematic with some builds so I’m left with Asus, Gigabyte and AsRock(they do have some good competitive prices).
I only want to spend around $175 for the board, the trick part is which one to choose, a B450, B550 or a X570. If I get the X570 for this price it will have to be the lower end but at least I don’t have to worry about problems with the cpu not being recognised plus if I ever want to upgrade the cpu I should be able to get a 4000series with the same board.
I do have a almost new Samsund SSD 512Gb, I want to buy a couple 2x8Gb DDR4 RAM sticks but still don’t know if 2800-3000Mhz would make me happy enough or should I aim for more?
For the rest I don’t care much, I’ll just pick something that works and not too expensive.
If you have some experience with this kind of stuff, please share your opinion about the motherboards I mentioned or others, and about the RAM.
