Tempting. Would this be a good fit for a 1060? Light gaming and mostly web stuff. Don't need the onboard graphics of course. Was wanting to move onto 6 cores however. I need to move on from my i5 2500 as the motherboard is starting to give me troubles.

So many choices these days....

is i5-2500k still good for fortnite kind of games with a RX590? does the processor bottleneck the RX590?

Don't have the unlocked variant. Honestly I have just started noticing bottlenecks the last few months with my 1060. Stutters and occasional random lag. It has really held up well over the years!

Good board, I'm running 2 of them currently, one with a 3600 and one with a 3700x, got them for $20 each at Microcenter bundled with the CPUs, and they've been flawless for me.

Did you need a BIOS update before this board would accept the 3000 series chips?

Nice, this actually works out. I picked up the 2200G a few weeks ago on Amazon for $60, but haven't gotten around to grabbing a mobo. I'm returning it and getting this combo instead. If I consider the discount applying to the CPU only then they end up being the same price, and I get a mobo too. Didn't look closely at the details until the other poster mentioned onboard bluetooth and wifi, so that's a huge plus.

For a B450, you probably have to...

Yeah, that's what I was afraid of. I was under the impression the B450 and similar older boards needed an 2000 or older series chip to boot so that the BIOS update can be applied. That's not going to be easy for me.

My understanding from reading others' post is that you can request one from AMD if you can provide purchase proof for MOBO and 3-gen CPU.

Help me out here. I just ordered this combo. If I'm reading this correctly, The combo won't work unless I have an older AMD chip lying around to update the BIOS?
Thanks for any info.
