Hello! I am currently looking for some help with building my first every gaming pc. I have some ideas on what I might buy but there is just so many cpu and graphics card choices that I can’t decide what would be best. So that is why I’m here! My budget is $650-$750 which does not include things like a operating system, mouse keyboard, headphones nor and monitor I have those covered. This pc will mainly be for gaming and maybe a little productivity. The games I would like to play are Far Cry 4 & 5, Overwatch, Pubg, Fortnite, and Just Cause 3. Thanks, WishUponDaLottery

Tight fit for the budget, but this should be something you might want.

Thanks! I will definitely take this into consideration but do you think there could be a cheaper option for a motherboard to lower the price?

There are cheaper alternatives, you just need one that is updated and compatible with the 2200G. Should be labeled at "Ryzen 2000 ready". You won't see that on here but check sources like NewEgg, B&H, Amazon, so on and so forth. Whoever advertises that on a B350/X370 board - you should be good to go. It also wouldn't hurt to contact customer service and ask them. X470 comes ready to go which is probably why I_got_you went that route.

These would be good alternatives. Keep in mind that X370/X470 is the route to take if you're wanting to overclock at all.

Why use all this old hardware?

DDR3 RAM? an old and bad FX processor?

This is rly not a good choice its best to go with newer hardware for the same price
