The big issue with it is that even now alot of them ship with old BIOS, which requires you to have a 1st gen Ryzen to flash the BIOS first.

You'll need a separate video card to get video for non-APU AMD chips. ​Only APUs https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zen...sktop_APUs will provide graphics through on-board mobo graphic ports. 2200G is more than enough for 4k video playback for those looking for a great media/light gaming pc.

This bundle is a great productivity or gaming base (look for the MSI 570 deals currently going on as well). If you want to play AAA titles at 4k and 60fps, you'll need to step up to at least a Vega 64 or GTX 1080/1080ti.

It's been a while since I've put a computer together. The mobo description says it supports 4K video, but it doesn't specify the HDMI port version. Would this kit support 4K over HDMI, or would I need a separate video card?

Thanks! I do zero gaming, just productivity and would like to be able to run two 4K monitors, thinking it's time to upgrade my Phenom machine. I mostly just use browser, spreadsheet, and occasionally some light photo editing. I have a good box, psu, and ssd, but would need mobo, cpu, and ram. Is the MSI 570 overkill for me?

It likely is an overkill. But it's relatively cheap right now and it doesnt make too much sense to save $30 to get a 560.

Pretty much any current gen GPU from AMD or nVidia will drive 4k monitors. If you only need to drive them at 60hz then the cheapest DisplayPort 1.4 or HDMI 2.0 specced GPU should be fine. Not knowing what monitors you have, Bing/Google what standards they support. If they don't support DP1.4 or HDMI 2.0, then you can go even cheaper. Smilie

https://smile.amazon.com/EVGA-GeF...01M64G435/ would be a great office/photo card, with the ability to get into some light video editing or gaming later on. Doesn't require supplemental power either.

I've been told this isn't the best value option for a gaming PC. Supposedly, the i3-8350k beats a 2700 for gaming and daily use, and even the Ryzen 5 1600 would be a better option.
EVERYTHING is subjective. An i3 8350k would likely dominate the 1700x CPU on a single or dual threaded application in synthetic benchmarks. Would you be able to notice the difference browsing the web? Absolutely not. It would be a limited CPU for multi-tasking or streaming while doing something else, or any application that can use more than four simultaneous threads. Take it from a guy who recently went from an i3-3220 to an i7-3770. It's noticeable today compared to five years ago. Smilie

YouTube has some great videos on where the i3's make sense. For the price, I don't really see a reason NOT to go with a much more threaded cpu for everyday use... unless your applications specifically call for a single/duo threaded CPU where IPC is king. Keep in mind you will need to get an aftermarket cooling solution for this bundle based on how much you want to push it (a $30 air cooler is fine for stock/slight OC).

I think the problem you'll run into is this won't heat your room nearly as much as the phenom
