    WTB: $70 AM4 B450 / X470 (or newer hah!) motherboard

    I'm trying to build a Ryzen system for someone with a strict $350 budget, and the last thing that I need is a motherboard. There is $70 left in the budget (well, technically it's $69.26 left , but I'll cover the overage). I'm hoping to find a B450 or X470 board. It can be mATX or ATX.

    Zotac 1050ti works vertical but not horizontal

    Well, good news and bad news. I used my hot air station on the GPU and it seems to be working fine in any orientation now. The bad news is that I know this is not a long term fix.

But when the computer is put vertical and the card is heatsink side down, the computer does not see the card. Other cards work in the...

    WTB: Low profile DDR4, Gigabyte AB350M-D3H

    I need some low profile DDR4 (I think some manufacturers call it VLP). Not the Corsair LPX stuff or standard DDR4 without heatsinks as it is too tall. And it can't be ECC. I'm apparently very picky! Also need a Gigabyte AB350M-D3H or any microATX AM4 motherboard with a PCI slot.

    WTB: Intel 660p 1tb SSD for $75 shipped

    So maybe you bought one of these and it wasn’t fast enough. It will be plenty fast enough for my needs. Sell it to me!

    I'm looking for a few 240gb SATA SSDs hopefully in the $20 each range. They don't have to be anything special. Thanks!
