Hi all, building a pc for my mom, what do you think should be the best motherboard for the ryzen 2400g? thanks
if she's doing basic tasks and you are not overclocking anything, then basically any B450 motherboard would be a good fit. I would of course not choose the cheapest possible board, although that would probably do fine for this purpose.
Okay thanks for the quick reply!
Okay, this is it. I know the psu is a bit over kill, but I couldnt find a decent less wattage one.
that actually looks very nice for an office PC. well-rounded with fast and responsive storage. simple colors. I own that monitor. not bad at all for the price. I'd have to give it the smiley-face of approval.
aww Thanks! This'll be her birthday present!
some users know the simple answer moreso than over at https://pcpartpicker.com/forums/topic/314722-cpu-done-mobo-for-small-case-2200g-cpu-16-64-ram
That is a good list, there are not many ITX mobo for amd, hopefully it can OC the memory well that helps APUs. Only thing I see you can get the intel 660 m.2 1tb for 103 right now, no wires, might be nicer in ITX system it appears to go on back of mobo. It spec about 3X faster than sata. Some reviews like the msi but reviews of this mobo appear positive also. Far as psu the 450 are pretty reasonable and who knows someone might toss a gpu in there that would run a reasonable gpu so you have an upgrade path.
Thanks- I checked the memory, its compatible :) Ill check out that ssd! I need all the spare room I can get!
Its like $40 less and same 1tb. Nobody seems to have problems with them, they are just a cheaper nvme and don't do 6X sata speed like an EVO m.2 they do 3X. They just cut price on them few weeks ago. The m.2 just plugs in the mobo so you would have no sata drive in there. The mobo says 34xx mem speed so your 3200 should run good. Most memory works now they have updated bios, make sure you update it asap with any new mobo. Most of them had issues with original bios.
Try to update any mobo drivers too. I'm doing a 2400g too just ordered an asus prime pro x470, but will upgrade cpu at some point so wanted a mobo good with larger cpu/gpu.
It being "for your mom" I assume she won't be doing anything heavy, so do you really need the 2400G in the first place?
Yes, for her work, she dose alot of edditing of some sort
yep no idea why you'd assume that, some moms teach at caltech
so their kids eventually also go on to caltech
