I've got an AMD 2600 in a b450 pro carbon AC motherboard. GPU is a recent purchase and a 6700xt (msi mech).
Started to have issued a couple weeks ago where half my ram was being allocated to the system. testing lots.of things out it turns out my A ram channel on my motherboard doesn't work and both the first slots don't boot with ram in only.
initially I thought it was a ram stick issue so have just purchased 32gb of new ddr4 but then on testing found it was the channel, as above.
Now kinda stuck with where to go to get this system running well. I'm very tight on budget after the recent GPU and ram purchase and I see motherboard are bloody expensive now.
Basically I'm looking for suggestions on which motherboard route to go down. is there a cost effective middle range board that would work now but also allow me to upgrade in the future to a 5th gen AM4 processor and still be pretty good. I'm going to reseat my CPU before ordering anything just incase that solves the issue.
Sorry for the ramble, hope that makes sense. thanks!
