If I'm not planning to overclock, would the Ryzen 5 1600x be also a good option? It's easier to find good used b350 mainboards

Thanks!!

Actually I'm building a PC from scratch but since I'm on a budget I'm trying to find most of the parts on the 2nd hand market, so it's about availabilty. I found this motherboard and since I'm probably looking for a 6th/7th gen intel processor, I thought it would fit quite well : ). I haven't found one yet, so I'm still waiting, but I already got the RAM and GPU.

I'm about to buy the case, CPU. motherboard, memory and monitor. Still looking for the GPU. Do you think they are good buys? Is there something that wouldn't together with the other parts? I guess I will get a power supply with more wattage too

I'm about to buy the case, CPU. motherboard, memory and monitor. Still looking for the GPU. There's nothing that wouldn't fit, right? Should I get a power supply with more power just in case, or the 550 W is enough?

The CPU 7700K got sold already. I might get a 6700 instead for 150€

Thank you all for your help! It's been really useful to know how to start checking things. I understand that I can't really use the parts of my old PC, right? Or that is not worth. Maybe still the HDD, since I have the one from my old PC (500GB) and the one from my old laptop (750GB). That could work?

So I checked used optiplexes and didn't find anything decent at a decent price. I've been checking 2nd hand parts and I've made a new build. The only parts I would buy new would be in this case the CPU cooler and the Power Supply. Thoughts?

These are the prices for each part: CPU: 130€ Mother Board: 50€ RAM: 60€ GPU: 100€ Case: 35€

All together would be around 465€, plus some expenses on the shipping

Thanks again!
