So first thing's first, Windows: ~$130 for Home Edition.

Okay, so things to keep in mind:

  1. If you go Intel, overclocking isn't too great on 9th gen intel, especially if you don't have a beefy aftermarket cpu cooler. So if you don't plan on doing that at some point then you don't need a K series CPU and an overclocking motherboard. So your motherboard should primarily focus on giving you decent I/O options.

  2. You also probably want to aim for 1080p or 1440p tops, given your price range.

  3. Related to #1: If you don't plan on overclocking then a basic-ish mobo will do fine, and you mainly want to focus on I/O and other features. If you are getting Intel doubly so, as, as I mentioned before, intel 9th gen doesn't overclock well due to relatively low headroom to begin with. For intel overclocking boards are "Z" while non-overclocking boards are "B". For AMD they are "X" and "B" respectively.

    The GPU you should be seeking to use is the 1660 Ti, which is basically a slightly gimped RTX 2060 but without the raytracing stuff. If you are willing to spend a bit more then you could get an RX 5700 instead, which is nearly ~30% faster on average.

    That'll put you at $270 - $360 depending on the model you pick. Yes, it's a third of your budget, but the GPU is the single most important part of your build.

    Secondly you'll want a decent CPU to go with that.

    The Ryzen 5 3600 looks like a pretty good CPU, its a bit under $200, its fairly beefy and extendable so it's somewhat "future-proof" - in that it shouldn't cause much bottlenecking and you could upgrade your GPU past a 2080 Ti before needing to change the processor.

    This MSI Tomohawk Mobo looks good for the 3600.

    So we're at ~$320 for that, or about $640 total. Plus windows that is ~$730.

    The RAM Inty recommended before should be fine. You only really need 16 GB. This will set you back ~$80. If you find yourself wanting more RAM later down the line you can always add another pair of sticks later and double up your RAM.

    That puts us at around ~$800.

    $80 for a 750W Fully Modular Corsair PSU is basically a steal. It's refurbished though, although that shouldn't be a problem - especially with a PSU.

    We're at ~$880.

    Some good thermal paste for your CPU.

    We're now at ~$890.

    Storage depends on what you want to do. Do you install a lot of stuff and files at once? In which case you might want to get a nice sized SSD plus a big HDD.

    For your system drive. Plenty of space, good price, AND its an nvme SSD.

    That makes for ~$990.

    If you need lots of extra space

    If you need extreme extra space

    Keyboard and case are up to you, decide as you please. For the case just make sure that it can support an ATX mobo, as the mobo listed here is full ATX. Mechanical keyboards are crack, but they tend to be more expensive so they're probably out of range. This will be another $100 to $150 depending on what you pick.

    Something to keep in mind though: Your case and your monitors are basically "future proof". In other words, they won't really get "worse" with time or cause future performance issues. So monitors and case are things where you want to consider what you'll eventually want and buy ahead, even if you have to stretch a bit.

    This just leaves your monitor. I would NOT recommend a 1080p monitor above 24 in. Honestly, if you can go for a 1440p monitor then do it. I'm a bit of a resolution whore tho, so if 1080p works for you then that's fine. I would also avoid TN panels - they tend to look more washed out, tinny, and have worse viewing angles . . . although they also tend to be a fair bit cheaper than the good panels (namely IPS panels).

    I used to own one of these . . . it was vvy vvy gud. This is a relatively artsy monitor, so if color gamut correctness or whatever is important for you for photo or video editing or whatever, then this is a good pick. It's a bit expensive, yeah, but also super gorgeous. It also goes up to 75 Hz. Conversely, get a freesync monitor, and this one is probably good - haven't done much research on it, but Dells are generally pretty good in my experience (my current 4K monitor is a Dell too). Freesync will allow you to basically eliminate screen tearing and will provide a smoother feeling experience because it will even out frame rates better.

    One last thing to keep in mind: Shopping around on ebay and other sites can save you a fair bit. My rule of thumb is to never, ever buy sensitive parts like hard-drives, cpus, or motherboards second hand or refurbished. But everything else is fair game. So refurbished GPUs, Monitors, PSUs, Cases, etc. should be fine. Pre-owned? Ehhh . . . that I'm much, much more sketchy on - personally I wouldn't, but that's just me.

    So in total it'd be somewhere in the range of $1500 including monitor, OS, case, and keyboard. The system itself is around $1000. But you can perhaps knock off a hundred bucks or two by shopping around and looking for where you can buy these parts cheaper than Amazon.

    But again: investing in a good monitor and case can be worth it. It means you won't have to replace it if/when you do upgrade. And worst case scenario you can offload your monitor as a side/secondary monitor when you upgrade your monitor to a new one.

Sharing my experience with the Tomahawk B450.

I bought it before reaching this subreddit.

List of parts bought on amazon:

Msi B450 Tomahawk

Ryzen 3600

Patriot Viper 16GB X2

Samsung NVME 1TB 970

Parts I had and reused for the build:

Zotac GTX 1060 6GB

Cooler master Master Box Case

Seasonic Modular PSU (will update later on the exact model)

Samsung 1TB HDD

Parts I bought for the Bios Flashing:

Amd AM4 Athlon 200GE with Vega geaphics

After reading some of the posts here and the updates I figured I would need an updated bios on my motherboard before connecting the 3600.

Failing to find a store/repair shop to do the bios upgrade for me I bought the cheapest AM4 I could find in my region (Israel) to do the flashing.

I assembled the PC with one RAM stick, the Athlon 200GE, No Cmos Battery, connected to the DVI port of the motherboard, inserted a USB stick with the latest Bios from the MSI website ( 7C02v1A ), started the built in flash utility of the Bios, and waited.

The flashing process took a while, so for everyone doing the flashing "blind" (with the button and the USB method) you should wait at least 10 minutes between tries.

After the process finished, I shut down the computer, unplugged the PSU, did a power release (Clicked the power button a bunch of times), and swaped the Athlon with the 3600.

Booted UP, looked at the leds on the motherboard....CPU...VGA....and stuck.

Thought maybe I failed to do anything right, and then remembered the 3600 doesnt have GPU built in.

Truned off the PC, unplugged the PSU, did a power release (Clicked the power button a bunch of times), and Inserted the GTX 1060.

Connected the DVI cable to the GPU, turned on the PC, waited for the leds. And voila, booting properly and going into bios.


At this point I shut down the PC again,unplugged the PSU, did a power release (Clicked the power button a bunch of times), and plugged the rest of the components (Another RAM stick, NVME, HDD, Wireless PCIE card), did all the cable management needed and closed the case.


Turned on the PC, got into Bios settings, changed some settings, mainly XMP, and booting options, and booted into the USB3 thumbdrive with WIN10 1903 install.


Finished installing the OS, booting into windows, sudden restart, then again, and again???????

Windows showing error "Windows failed to start"

Trying Safe mode, windows is stable, driver issue.

Reset Bios settings, windows is stable.

Changing settings 1 by 1:

XMP - Stable

Vitrualazation - Stable


Didn't pusue any more changes than that ATM.


PC is working fast, no issues so far.

Will update if anything changes.



My system works, I don't do any overclocking whatsoever, your mileage may vary.

u/Timtheuselessgod · 3 pointsr/PcBuild

I’d save a bit of money and go with a b450 board unless you absolutely need the pcie 4.0. this MSI tomahawk is good or this Gaming pro Carbon if you want wifi built in. The other things I’d swap is your ssd for an intel 660p. It’s cheaper and faster.

As for a cooler, with the black theme you’ve got going a dark rock pro 4 would look pretty sweet in there, just check compatibility with your memory for clearance.

u/watermelon08 · 3 pointsr/buildapcsales


This is more accurate link. Make sure the seller is Amazon Warehouse, and remember that 20% discount is taken at check out.

u/theoutsider95 · 2 pointsr/Amd

Thank you, I am upgrading from 4790k to 3600x, so I wanted a board with USB flash back, that's why I decided on the tomahawk.

This is the board I ordered


u/ColinWalin · 2 pointsr/buildapcsales

I got the msi arsenal tomahawk. If you go to the Amazon warehouse used it's cheaper and there might still be a discount that brings it down to $71. Better then $110 new.

The discount is at checkout so you need to start the checkout process and see if it gives you the discount. If it doesn't you can always leave the checkout tab.

u/epicshark90 · 2 pointsr/buildapc

I just got this and it didn’t need a bios update.

u/shadfalilacivory · 2 pointsr/buildapc

Well for cpu the ryzen 2600 is the best value cpu out there and gives great 1080p performance.
There are good b450 board like the Tomohawk b450 board which will fit right in that case I believe: https://www.amazon.com/MSI-Crossfire-Motherboard-B450-Tomahawk/dp/B07F7W5KJS

u/JrRileyRj · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Depends. How much are you looking to spend on one? if you are looking for something under $120 I can say this is pretty good. [I have heard many good things and have seen it used a lot.] (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07F7W5KJS/) Has good overclocking capabilities and still has the m.2 slot.

u/IceAcolyte · 2 pointsr/buildapc

What's the usage? Is this a budget build? How much RAM you need? is your case ATX or mATX?

For CPU, only 3600 will fit your budget out of the decent ones. Any lower and you'd be stepping into APU territory for low-budget builds.

Example combo: [3600] (https://www.amazon.com/AMD-Ryzen-3600-12-Thread-Processor/dp/B07STGGQ18) ($195) + 16 GB RAM ($78) + B450 Tomahawk ($115) = $388.

This is US$ right, not Canadian or Australian?

u/WirelessZombie · 2 pointsr/bapcsalescanada

Appreciate it, I'll just keep replying here if that's cool. Don't mind either way about PM but I do find lurkers might appreciate some of the advice. I'm set on the 2600, and its now 185 on Amazon so that helps. I'm pretty set on the tomahawk Mobo too which I think is lowest if you have prime.

I would like to see pics of the case, I hate the one I have its so dull and bulky but not also huge fan of the "I'M A GAMER" cases, which seem overpriced regardless. One you have is nice.

I might upgrade to a 1070 in a year+, from what I can tell that still pairs nicely with a 2600 but wanted to check. and lastly I do have 16 Gb of Ram but would consider getting some that works best with the Mobo and amd, did you already have Ram or did you buy to compliment the board.

edit: also would love a quite setup, my computer makes a decent amount of noise and I use it as part of the entertainment system.

u/Frs4ken · 2 pointsr/MSI_Gaming

Amazon is very flexible. Some items have free returns https://www.amazon.com/MSI-Crossfire-Motherboard-B450-Tomahawk/dp/B07F7W5KJS/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=b450+tomahawk&qid=1564295902&s=gateway&sr=8-1 for example.

If you claim its broken they pay the shipping fee, but if you put not needed anymore you havev to pay it

dont feel bad, its a huge company

u/PM_ME_ABSOLUTE_UNITZ · 2 pointsr/Amd

Get a B450 Tomahawk. Cheap and will overclock the 3600 easy.


u/io2red · 2 pointsr/buildapcsales

If you plan on doing any overclocking, there is a good motherboard tier list based on VRM's.

Also if you don't have an older generation Ryzen chip... You will want to check the list of motherboards that supports USB BIOS Flashback. This feature will allow you to flash the bios to the newer Zen 2 supporting bios without needing an older gen Ryzen chip. You may want to cross reference both of the lists.

The B450 Tomahawk is pretty reliable for the price and was just on sale (currently $100 on Amazon). It has decent VRM's, and it also supports the USB BIOS Flashback feature mentioned earlier. I personally just picked one up a few days ago on the last sale and plan to use that for my upcoming Zen 2 PC.

Wishing you luck on your future build!

PS: If you don't have a power supply yet, there is also a good PSU Tier list.

u/sri745 · 1 pointr/buildapcsales

Does anyone know if the 450 Tomahawk is a good price for $99? Amazon link.

u/SaucyAlphonse · 1 pointr/buildapc

Is this the motherboard that you have; https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B07F7W5KJS/ref=ox_sc_act_image_1?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1 cause I’m thinking of buying it if it does support Ryzen Zen 2

u/Kevin9809 · 1 pointr/Amd

I may go with the 3600X due to the availability issues of the 3600 if I order in the next day or two. The money I would be saving by buying the B450 mobo instead makes it come out to the same total price.


By the way, here is what I am looking at currently:

B450 mobo - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07F7W5KJS/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1

Corsair DDR4 3200 2x8GB RAM - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B072LX99L9/ref=ox_sc_act_title_3?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1

Ryzen 5 3600K - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07SQBFN2D/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1

u/SlickAsCanBe · 1 pointr/buildapc

would one of the MSI tomahawk mobo work as well?


looking at this one https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07F7W5KJS/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1

u/toxicity959 · 1 pointr/buildapc

I'd swap the mobo for an MSI B450 Tomahawk which has better VRMs at around the same price - shouldn't make a huge difference to this build, but if you upgrade your CPU in the future (AMD has stated that the AM4 socket will be compatible with all CPUs released through 2020) it'll give you some more headroom. Otherwise looks great!

would this be better?

u/Eternal_Ohm · 1 pointr/buildapc

Since it's AMD FX you'd also need new ram as it's DDR3 modern systems use DDR4 now. Due to your budget I'd recommended a Ryzen 5 2600 (around $100) a B450 Tomahawk (around $100) I'd personally recommend a Corsair RMX PSU 550 watts or more should be plenty while I could say just find the cheapest Corsair RMX as they range from 550 watt to 850 Watt with some of the higher watt one's being cheaper then the lower watt ones I'd suggest the 550 watt one for efficiency reasons most of them seem to cost around $100 (excluding the 1000 watt but that would be overkill anyway). As for ram I'd suggest some Corsair Vengeance 3200 MHz CL16

u/Stuffdedoop · 1 pointr/buildapc

Cool thanks! I was just curious because this is the one that I’m planning on getting and it says only 1st and 2nd gen.

u/david_hofland · 1 pointr/buildapcsales

You might have good luck with pricing in your area, but under $500 for just three parts would be quite easy. r5 2600 + msi b450 tomahawk + Corsair 16gb 3000mhz comes out to <$300.

If you prefer 3rd gen ryzen: r5 3600 + asus tuf x570 (wifi) + same Corsair ram comes out to <$450.

u/Mythicguy · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

u/rallymax · 1 pointr/buildapc

I would make a couple of tweaks:

Replace 2700x with 3600
Replace MB with MSI B450 Tomahawk. Performs BIOS flash via USB for 3rd gen support (manual page 40).
Replace RAM with Crucial Ballistix it will overclock to 3433 easy, maybe 3600.
Replace SSD with Sabrent Rocket 512GB NVME

Net cost impact about $15 more.

u/Azbogah · 1 pointr/buildapc

Thank you for suggestion. Which B450 MB would you suggest? There are so many. What do you think of this?

  • MSI B450 Tomahawk

    Now that I think, 190$ for a MB for a CPU that I won't overclock seems too redundant.
u/Padeus · 1 pointr/buildapc

Thanks, I was looking into that. I still don't understand what sli capability means... which probably means it doesn't matter lol.


Is this the motherboard you had in mind? I haven't found any significantly cheaper than this one.

u/_Kai · 1 pointr/pcgaming

You can refer to this list in regards to motherboard cooling (of the VRM components). The 2700x boosts by default to a point that OC is not necessary, and OC can be detrimental to performance on the X tier CPUs. However, it can increase performance when done correctly. If that's your goal, then the Tomahawk is a good option. Either way, depending on the case, airflow, and dust cleaning schedule, it will help with the extra heat.

If you want the current hardware you've selected now, what I would do if i wanted to save some money is get a msi b450 tomohawk it doesn't have Asus aura but does have msi mystic light for rgb control. You could also go with an air cooler like Noctua NH-D15 and a cheaper case like the Nzxt H500 but other then that I don't seem much else to save you money on.

For Mobo, I love the gaming pro carbon, very very nice especially if you want WiFi capability (it's pretty fast for a stock card), otherwise, I'd check out a b450 tomahawk:

Youre going to have a hard time getting 144 fps at 1080p with a 1070, I'd go with at least an rtx 2060 or GTX 1070ti for those extra frames...

Hello everyone. I'm looking to upgrade to an m.2 ssd. Can you guys just confirm for me if these parts are compatible?



I read on pcpartspicker that they are. However; it says slot #1 will disable 2 sata ports. I believe there are 4 on this mobo. So will sata ports #1 and #2 be disabled but #3 and #4 still functional?

Thanks for the help and sorry if dumb question.

go with 2700x instead of the 1900x. if you have a use case for high core count then i recommend the 2950x. but you probably don't need it because the 2700x is awesome. 2700x also has 8 cores like the 1900x but you can go am4 rather than tr4 and save money on your motherboard. you'll also have a lesser power draw and a more compact case. 850W seems more than enough i think you can downsize to 650W. i like to spend a little more on the power supply. by going 2700x i would spend some of the money saved on a higher rated power supply. also if you switch to 2700x the stock cooler is pretty based so you can save money by using it. for memory i suggest using samsung b-die it had better success with 1st gen ryzen.

here's a parts list for a decent 2700x build:








that prices out around $1050. it does not price in a graphics card, for which the Sapphire Vega 56 card you listed is already a great pick. i think those go for around $300 today. if you can re-use your current case and already have thermal paste you can decrease the price by about $150. assuming you can get a Sapphire Vega 56 for around $300 this build prices out $1200 total.

The 3600 is not a motherboard.

If you truly want to, you could buy the MSI b450 Tomahawk mobo for $114, only $10 more.

You’ll have to update the Bios and hope it works though. MSI Arsenal Gaming AMD Ryzen 1st and 2nd Gen AM4 M.2 USB 3 DDR4 DVI HDMI Crossfire ATX Motherboard (B450 Tomahawk) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07F7W5KJS/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_Qr6FDbP3X2QTV

Otherwise I recommend getting an X570. It’s worth the money

You're def right about the RAM.

As for cpu/mobo
something like this?

Anything a lifelong Intel user will need to know when switching to AMD?

$115. The Max version is backordered a couple weeks. The version that would need the BIOS updated via USB is available from Amazon now.

nope since AMD are bro's they kept the same socket for Zen, Zen+ and Zen 2. Sure you wont get the PCI4 but who gives a shit. https://www.amazon.com/MSI-Crossfire-Motherboard-B450-Tomahawk/dp/B07F7W5KJS

u/Freyja-Lawson · 1 pointr/intel

I would say that your best bet would be to take the gamble on the MSI B450 Tomahawk -- or, if you can wait until it is released, the MSI B450 Tomahawk MAX. The reason I am suggesting this board in particular is that it has good VRM, which will be good for overclocking, though at the 3600-tier, it probably won't matter, but most importantly, it features BIOS flashback, which means you will not need a Ryzen 1000 or 2000-series CPU to update the BIOS to accept a Ryzen 3000-series.

Yes, that means you will lose out on the pretty GUI BIOS, but in the end, it should just work. That's what is important, right?

I've been looking to do a ryzen build. I have most of my parts (Ryzen 5 2600X, G.SKILL Trident Z RAM, psu, case and storage). The only two left are the motherboard and the GPU.

Is a MSI B450 Tomahawk for the motherboard and an MSI GTX 1660 Ti good choices? I can currently get both on Amazon.com as I have some gift card balance on there (too bad I can't use that balance on amazon.ca).


u/bakedcookie612 · 1 pointr/buildapc

I imagine you’re talking about this? tomahawk

Is it necessary? I do like how it looks compared to the more expensive version I have picked out. Not to mention saves $10 but it is much more expensive than the first one I have picked. Is it necessary and worth the original purchase or is it something I could wait on and maybe upgrade later

Edit: it’s only $25 more so that’s not bad but then another $50 for the 1tb so it’s a $75 upgrade

u/Zodiac____ · 1 pointr/buildapc

There you go.

It's cheaper on other vendors though.

u/Mandog_123 · 1 pointr/buildapc

I’ll definitely switch out the PSU, thanks!

Also, the Tomahawk is still $100 at Amazon.

u/Kennett-Ny · 1 pointr/buildapc

Firstly change the ram to either 3000mhz or 3200mhz, don't get anything lower if you're getting Ryzan

Would this board work with a ryzen 3600?

Since you're wanting to purchase today, I opted for the 2070 rather than the 2070 super. Other than that, here are some notes:

  • Link to motherboard on amazon
  • Flash BIOS v17 and then v18 [source]
  • After successfully booting, enable XMP in order for RAM to reach full clock speed
