MSI MPG X570 GAMING PLUS Gaming Motherboard AMD AM4 SATA 6Gb/s M.2 USB 3.2 Gen 2 HDMI ATX
MSI MPG X570 GAMING PLUS Gaming Motherboard AMD AM4 SATA 6Gb/s M.2 USB 3.2 Gen 2 HDMI ATX

Pros: -Good price for performance -AMD Ryzen 3000 ready -Easy to upgrade from previous motherboard.

Cons: -ASMedia ASM1061 controller on first two SATA plugs.

Overall Review: Bought this to upgrade from my AM3+ socket to the AM4 and all the new features that brings. That being said, I'm no enthusiast by any means. However, when I got everything up and running I noticed that Windows took an extra minute or two to fully boot up. My previous build, that I upgraded from, took maybe 15 seconds from pressing the power button to loading up my first program. Perusing through the newegg reviews I found a most helpful review that suggested that the ASMedia ASM1061 controller that MSI put on the board was buggy and inefficient. When I initially hooked my SSD SATA in, I plugged it into SATA 1. Not 10 minutes ago, I switched it over to SATA 3 and now Windows boots up in under 10 seconds. TL;DR If you're hooking up any high performance components into the SATA plugs, use SATA 3-6 first.

Fine card

Pros: Good performance

Cons: None (except bad timing, dang scalpers and miners)

Overall Review: It's a fine card, it does everything I want it to (2K @144Hz). However, I bought it back when it was about 1.2K. As of now, it's 999.99. I don't know if it will go lower, but I would recommend getting it now. I'm still kicking myself.

Excellent CPU for price

AMD Ryzen 7 3rd Gen - RYZEN 7 3700X Matisse (Zen 2) 8-Core 3.6 GHz (4.4 GHz Max Boost) Socket AM4 65W 100-100000071BOX Desktop Processor

Pros: Performance

Cons: Runs hot undet load

Overall Review: No issues so far. Using in a gaming pc at 2k 144hz resolutions. It does run hot under load though, about 75-80c, so I'll be ordering a cpu cooler soon.

Excellent.

Pros: -Excellent for upgrading to a mid range gaming PC, it will handle darn near everything at 1080p -Comes with pretty good heatsink and fan

Overall Review: I use this primarily for 1080p gaming and work, so, I'm not very familiar with OC. I will say though, for upgrading from the AM3+ socket with 8GB 1600 DDR3 to this with 16GB 3200 DDR4, I'm tearing through modern titles at max settings with over 100FPS.
