Hey, I'm working on a budget build for a friend and his budgets 500$ (a bit more if it's critical enough)
Any way to make this build better? He don't care about looks.
I would get a B450 motherboard rather than an A320
I would also bump up the RAM speed to 3000mhz. Ryzen needs faster RAM.
Swapping some parts around gets you a better build.

Stuck with all Amazon if you are open to other vendors things can be cheaper or better.
