I've heard decent things about Origin PC or boutiques of the sort. Take a look at this series for giggles:

So for the 3900x it may be the x470 chipset or the X570, I don't actually know. We'll have to see. Similarly, it may run DDR4 but we will have to see after CES! Watercooling, I like NZXT AIOs but you can research stuff and shop around. Sorry I can't help much!

Check and see if your BIOS reports the memory info properly maybe :P

Puzzled look as I fumble with the box, no mention of ridges, valleys, lakes, or mountains on it.

What is this RX-2x00 vs RX-2x00G/GE? I found some explanations on the web, but still pretty uncertain of what they mean, which is preferable and where to go ... I am looking at DDR4-2666 and DDR4-3000 but in 4gb sticks.

Thank you very much for swatting the display questions so succinctly! Well done, Blackhawk! And the CPU and motherboard sound pretty zoomy! First new MoBo I've had in over a decade. Sweet! (Well, save the mining motherboard ... for sale cheap ... hah hah hah!)

Found this from Patriot: DDR4-3000

Alright, so I will break this down (I hope).

What you have (if you actually bought what I recommended) is Ryzen 5 2600. The "codename" for this is Pinnacle Ridge. The difference between 2x00 (Like your R5 2600) and 2x00G/GE is that the G and GE variants are APUs, which have built-in GPUs. They aren't the same and don't have the same memory. Also as a note, Ryzen CPUs like fast memory (3000+Mhz is good) and faster memory usually gives better performance. Best of luck with the new build!

So A) Here you go (https://msi.com/Motherboard/support/X370-GAMING-PLUS#support-cpu), click on the button that says Memory Rx-Whatever gen of CPU you got.

B) I think you can use all outputs on both GPUs which I think answers your question. :P

What mobo did you buy?

Qualified Vendors List, may be in the mobo manual or on the site. It tells you what memory MSI tested with the boards. Good luck!

Definitely go to the QVL on the mobo's website BTW.

As far as I know, there shouldn't be any major issues. Get an AMD processor and AMD board you should be fine.

Something like that maybe? I don't know. I am milking your budget a little with that though. Dig around and see what you come up with. Choose the blue or red team, either way, it is up to you. :P

PS: What other parts do you have?

Ryzen is priced pretty damn well, maybe take a look at B350 boards or x370 boards. :P
