WOW, these have come down fast
Im gamer. Should I go Intel board or Amd 570. Trying to decide which is best...
isnt this one of the MSI boards that runs really hot? Have a look at gamersnexus to make sure before buying.

Intel if you just game, AMD to save money or if you have intentions of being a content creator.

If you go AMD, don't cheap out on the RAM. Part of the Ryzen architecture envolves high speed ram frequency.

Note: this is valid if you buy a high end cpu. This listing is just for the motherboard.

Nice to see x570 boards are dropping in price. Need a good price drop on a good mATX/ITX board, but they are still expensive, particularly the Asus crosshair impact but unfortunately it seems to be the only one with plenty of USB ports on the I/O panel and an optical audio output.

That depends on the motherboard and the QVL list for that motherboard. I cannot recommend a brand that has not made it into the QVL list. For 3x00 ryzen series for that motherboard, here's the QVL list:

msi.com/Mot…LUS

However, there is one universal thing that you should know about ram. Get ram using Micron E-die (MSI calls it "chipset" in the compatibility list for that motherboard).

My suggestion:

* Don't buy single channel (one stick), get dual channel (pair). Even though is "doubling" the bandwidth usage, the actual performance/speed increase is around 12%/16%.
* Get 16GB, no more, no less... Some games use more than 8GB and no games use more than 12GB. More than that is up to you. 32GB allows you to disable page file in windows (page file would stay in ram). Minor performance gain.
* Minimum of 3200mhz speed. 3600mhz is perfect. More than that is wasting money. Make sure you enable XMP in bios, otherwise, you bought the ram and they are running at JEDEC (stock) specification speeds.
* The lower the latency (CL) the better (also the more expensive it is). Gain are minimal, but I'm just sharing what the internet wants and that's "the best"
* Make sure you get ramsticks that use Micron E-die
* RGB ram is entirely option. Whoever says you get more FPS, they are trolling you.

edit: Samsung B-die is no longer being manufactured. Micron E-die is the next best choince.

9900K is overkill for gaming, imo.

If you are going Intel, get a GIGABYTE motherboard. They won the Z390 mobo war.

If you are an ASUS fanboy, unless you find a really good deal on STRIX motherboards, do not get anything other than the HERO.

They stopped making B-die 6 months ago so hardly any left in market and what used to be B-die now generally uses lesser C or D-die so need to be careful.
Micron E-die is is what most are now after with Ryzen.

That depends on your budget and your intended refresh rate. Basically, if you're going for super high refresh rate (ie: more than 144hz) you should go with a 9600k/9700k/9900k ... though I can't in good-conscience recommend the 9600k at all personally.

The only exception here is the i5 9400 *IF* you are super cautious/anxious about building/tweaking, as you can put together a budget build which is slightly more "plug-n-play" than the r5 2600 for similar prices.

Anything else (and for people who can switch a setting and enter a value in a bios)? AMD wins at this point. For the £100 CPU budget, it's the R5 2600 no question. For the £200 budget, it's the R5 3600. For mixed usage, the R7 3700x, for the multithreaded focus, the R9 3900k.

The old adage of "intel wins for gaming" is only true today under certain qualifications. AMD wins at gaming for the budget and mid-tier across the board in terms of frame time consistency and thus gaming experience.

Micron E-die is the way without a doubt, whether you're running Intel or AMD, I picked up the Crucial Ballistix Sport LT 16GB a couple of months ago when it was ~£56 on Amazon.de. Out the box it's 3200@cl16, it hits 3200@cl14 easily and can manage 3600@cl16 without breaking a sweat, I forget exactly what the part number is without looking but I'm sure I remember it has to be 'AESCK' or something similar, considering what I paid I couldn't be happier. Hope this helps someone

Don't get this perticular 570, MSI 570 bourds are pretty poor, but they did just release a new one which isn't too bad.
As for Intel /amd go for INTEL if you have a large yearly budget and all you do is game.

If so, that's good news and would make more sense (as why would they drop one of the key selling points). The article I linked previously said video cards would be gen 3 - "with four extra Gen 4 lanes from the CPU, you can still opt to go with an M2 PCIe 4.0 slot. The rest, incl videocards thus is gen 3.0." Maybe they have just written it badly.

As I understand it on B550 you can ether have a PCIe 4 GFX card slot or a PCIe 4 M. 2 slot.

Go Ryzen Gen 3, 3600 or maybe a 3700x if you can stretch for more cores (futureproof), the 3600 and 3600x are identical save for the included cooler, if you have a decent tower/water cooler you will get identical performance and save yourself a few £££ in the process. They trade blows with the top tier Intel cpus (even the 9900K) for a fraction of the price in gaming and rinse them in any other general use thanks to the extra threads. You can put those savings towards a better gpu which if all you are doing is gaming is a much better option, the gpu is where you want to be investing the most (it didn't always use to this bad tbf but now the gpu can easily consume half the budget, damn you crypto ). Just my 2 cents peace
