Motherboard is MSI Tomahawk B450. And I just realized I followed the wrong wire. I found it, it's not connected. Doh!

But which fan port should I connect it to?

PUMP_FAN1

SYS_FAN1

SYS_FAN2

SYS_FAN3

SYS_FAN4

Ah, I could't tell if you were saying it was enough wattage or not. What do you think tho about that? Mind you, in addition to the parts listed, a camera and video streaming service will both be connected via USB.

This can be taken a couple different ways. Not sure what you're meaning. :D

Thanks again, you've been very helpful during this build. Wish we had some sort of endorsement feature on here or something. :D

Thanks, I ordered the one from BHP (first link).

Question on memory; will this one be ok (already ordered but can return if needed): https://pcpartpicker.com/product/Cf98TW/gskill-memory-f43200c16d16gvkb

It's telling me "MSI B450 TOMAHAWK MAX ATX AM4 Motherboard and AMD Ryzen 7 2700X 3.7 GHz 8-Core Processor are not compatible."

Ideas?

What if we need to add a graphics card later for some reason? Would CPU be lagging behind the i5?

Leaves me wondering if the i5 I have is better than this Ryzen?

It seems like so far the suggestions is for gaming. But what about for camera and video streaming service which both connect via USB?

I'm not sure the "cheap office pc" mentioned would be good enough. And the ones with gaming gpu's seem overkill?

I wasn't shooting for a gaming PC. In my original post; "to allow a camera and video streaming service which both connect via USB".

Comment reply on Forum Topic "The most bang for the buck?"

What makes this better? I mean it looks like a trade off of CPU to have a graphics card.

How much of a difference is it between 2666 and 3000. Noticeable?

Oof....should I change it to 2666 and call it a day or return the sticks and get ones that are 2666?

I'll probably go with the be quiet one you mentioned. About the i5 8400 - that appears significantly slower, eh?

Is it smaller than a regular ATX case? For example, is it smaller than this?

Just compatible with the other parts. Good cable management and easy to work with. Not too big.

I think this may work: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/T3rG3C/cooler-master-case-nse200kkn1

Thought GPU should be AMD also, since the CPU is AMD?

Sorry to be a pest, just trying to get this right for a good friend. :)

it looks like he has this in the machine: AMD Radeon HD 6410D

He recently bought the 1080p monitor and complains the picture isn't as clear as his old monitor. He only has VGA connection. So I figured a new GPU would give him the HDMI to drive the new monitor. So the GT 1030 would work on this?

The CPU is AMD A4-3420

Fantastic ! Thanks for the quick reply since i'm in the throes of doing this. Also, have you noticed it seems on a completely white screen the sides (about an inch all around) seem a little darker than the center of the panel?
