More nice finds. Not much like that around me. The font on that 4570 looks very different than I am used to seeing.

Clearing out your parts bins? That will be a great budget gamer. 1050ti is hardly “scrap parts”.

Thanks appreciate the kind words, 

I think we will try our best to do 1 a week older hardware video with the mix of new gear. The older hardware videos get great hits and amazing ROI.
I really want to do a FM2+ vs 2020 video soon as well as that above laptop

    • Seems like great choices. Sn750 is even better...just costs more. 
    • Thanks for the feedback Bond007! How would the 1TB SN750 compare? That is the one we ordered. I did not read your post till after we ordered. We got the SN750 for 199.99 so it was not too much more money 🙂 It is sad to hear that B550 will cost more. I agree, I wanted to wait but he would like his puter now hahaha. Concerning RAM we went with this. I know it is not Sammy b die but it will have to do. Also it was on sale.  He is considering a monitor, thinking about these two:  MSI 34" 3440x1440 100hz LG 32" 2560x1440 144hz   What do you think??
    • Seems like a great parts list. A quality PSU and a used rx580 or gtx 1070, and you are set. Lots of parts have been steadily increasing in cost. Make sure to get 3200-3600mhz ram. For the motherboard I would personally wait to see how b550 motherboards are cost wise after release (so close now). But otherwise the b450 of your choice is fine. For the SSD, the best bang for buck (IMO) is the sn550. I would try to squeeze a 1TB in if you can, since it should be enough to not have to deal with a secondary drive unless there is mass storage, or all games left installed. They are also generally the lowest cost/GB.   
    • Thank you! That would be a great help!!   It does seem that right now is a hard time to build. I am seeing B450 boards going out of stock, specifically the ASROCK B450M PRO4. It is my go to mobo it seems. Also B550 around the corner but will be more $. Intel 10600K would be my choice for gaming but it together with Z490 are crazy expensive!! Lastly it seems to me that NVME 1TB and 500GB SSDs are going up in price? Not good.
    • PSU and GPU's you say 😉 we got you fam   Also specs above look great
