Depends on the quality of the power supply some can put out nothing close to what they say and the rest of the parts your using.

From your saved parts list yes no problems.

Their all the same just different looks. I would pick none because of the motherboard, read the Newegg reviews.

Everything else depends on what the PC will be used for.

That is a 570 board and is junk. Asus even lied about the power delivery being 8 phase then when they were busted on it said it was a marketing error made in the US. Asus has become a very shady company.

Depends on what the PC will be used for most of it looks like overkill if you just need 16GB of memory, and the 1K motherboard is really bad.

1600 watt PSU?

If gaming it depends on the monitor as to what video card to buy in general the 2080ti is not worth the price increase over the 2080 super for the little extra performance.

I one time read a motherboard review that said bad board had to replace my memory.

From that picture that is a non standard motherboard without standard connectors so your going to need a new case , power supply, motherboard and operating system.

Your motherboard is not trash it just don't work with any of the 9XXX processors.

And yes your also going to need a new CPU cooler the one on the 8400 is not even close to good enough.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "AMD or Intel CPU?"

  • 14 days ago

Do Not buy a 5700 video card their a lot of bad ones out their and their still having driver issues.

For your AMD build all the warnings mean just what they say.

Motherboard probably will not work without a BIOS update using that processor.

CPU cooler AM4 has been out long enough that the AM4 bracket should be included unless the cooler was actually manufactured before it was released. (no way to tell how long it was sitting in a warehouse before being shipped to the store.

The clearance issues are standard warnings. The cooler will fit in the front of the case.

3600 memory is not a must and could be hard to get stable.

The performance to price increase of the 3700X over the 2700X is not very good especially with the way windows uses the cores of the 3XXX processors.

What parts do you have now, case, PSU, memory, video card? Need the brand and model. Do you have a copy of windows 10 that can be transferred to a new motherboard?

The motherboard must fit in the case the memory must work with the motherboard so your to vague to get a good answer.

If the cutout on the side of the case is big enough to mount the mounting bracket to the back of the board their no reason to remove anything.

Looking at the size of it I don't think you will need to remove anything.

First thing that catches my eyes is the 332 buck motherboard what a waste of money.

Read the user reviews on the board.

https://www.newegg.com/m/product/reviews?item=N82E16813119156&parentCount=20

That is also the board Asus tried to scam people by advertising 8 phase Vram when in fact it's 4. This was pushed off as a marketing mistake instead of a scam.

The way windows uses the cores of the 3xxx processor I would not consider buying one.

He did you very wrong.

To begin with that motherboard will almost not even be visible in a mid tower case and the 3800 is in no way worth the price increase over the 3700.
