    Could anyone recommend a good AMD and mobo combo for mid - High graphics gaming. Looking to spend around £650 on cpu mobo and card. Have a 500w psu, 1tb ssd and 8gb ram (thinking of upping that too). Gtx 1060ti card at the mo.

    Was thinking ryzen5 1600 AF socket or for nearly double the price ryzen5 3600x for the chip

    And Asus prime B450M-A micro ATX mobo.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Hello

    Are you willing to wait for a couple more weeks? This is because the AMD B450 successor chipset motherboards are due to go on sale.

    Yeah I could wait. No major rush. This is exactly why I needed to post! How much are they going to cost you think?

    Ryzen 5 3600 would be the go to option at that price.

    That's what I was thinking.

    So I'm thinking the ryzen 5 3600, b450 tomahawk, 16gb ddr4 ballistix and 1660 super card. Would that be a decent setup to run most games you think?

    That would do nicely for 1080p gaming, if your going for 1440p high refresh rate then 2060 super / 5700xt
