No I need all three. I was asking if the 65 watt cpu would do the job. It is low heat and comes with a fan and heatsink.

I bought a 10700 on ebay for $260, a msi mag b460 torpedo for $100 new. add in 16gb of ram for $80 ish. now you're up to $440. you can either spend whats left over on a different cpu like a 10600 or more ram. I'm planning to do the power limit overclocking. heres some articles about it:
