I'd prefer to use my list instead as the msi b450-A pro is basically a slightly cut down version of the b450 tomahawk, just with smaller heatsinks and lesser audio features. This saving in the budget allows him to get 16gbs of ram instead of 8gb.

You should add a WiFi adapter as well. :)

And for getting a decent PCIe WiFi adapter that means at least $50 more!

That is a budget frendly CPU but its hard to pass up the 1700 due to only being $40 more. I think thats probably the better buy. Yeah, OP might not need 8 cores but for $40 why not?

Nevermind didnt realize its overpriced in Canada.

Ryzen 3 or i3-8100. There are cheaper CPU's but you want to stick with 4c/4t for a budget build.
