First time builder, starting with AMD Ryzen 7 3700X, decided on HYTE Y60, now choosing motherboard.

No budget per se, I just don't want to cut too much into my savings intended for other expenses (originally I just planned to buy a <$400 graphics card) and if I do cut too much into it, I want to feel good about it because I got a lot of value for what I paid for.
Well that is why you need a budget. The 6700xt/6750xt is a good GPU in the ballpark under $400 (and probably including tax). You might want to consider that GPU as one of your options.
I'm not so familiar with the Nvidia side of things but it appears to me AMD right now has the better price/performance options at the moment.

Given what you have provided so far moving the 3700x, the RAM (and your storage?) to the new motherboard makes sense with skipping replacement parts to keep the HP running will reduce total cost but you will not have 2 PC's without spending more to keep the HP operational. Assuming at the moment you are sticking with just your new PC option right now, and reusing as much as you can, I suspect you are in $240 + $380 (estimate) that puts you in the ballpark of a total around $620 already which is already over your <400 initial plan. You will still need to get a PSU probably if that HP PSU doesn't provide the necessary power connectors and/or can't provide good wattage. To stay comfortably under a total $650 you may need to get more aggressive looking/waiting for good deals for both good PSU and GPU.

At minimum perhaps rx6600xt ($250) and 500 watt PSU ($100) .
Would this be enough for the games you play or plan to play?
( see gaming reviews for what you think might be what you are looking for in terms of performance )

I kind of wish you didn't pull he trigger on the mobo so fast and used something like PC part picker to help plan out your build first. You might have been able to shuffle quite a bit of $$$ around to optimize your choices without worry. It still might be a good idea to start a parts list at https://pcpartpicker.com/ to help plan out the rest of your build and get a general idea of the total cost including the parts you are reusing (or roughly their equivalent) so you don't fall into a trap where you are buying a lot of stuff and fall short of what you need/want in your affordable range.

I had a few Questions just out of curiosity:
- Did your existing HP motherboard support PCIe 4.0?
- Did your existing HP motherboard conform to ATX form factor?
- Was there a reason you could not use your original HP motherboard in the new case?

Looks like it does not support PCIe 4.0 as far as I can tell. It's a "Mini ATX." If I remember correctly, the motherboard would not support a PSU above 400 or 500 watts.

But that's because those are limited to using APU's. (not to be confused with those cute green ones you find on the internet)

Does the brand matter?

AMD Radeon RX
GIGABYTE AMD Radeon RX
Asus Radeon RX
PowerColor Red Dragon AMD Radeon RX
Dell Radeon RX
MSI AMD Radeon RX
ASRock Radeon RX

Oddly there is an AMD brand card and then ones that combine AMD and another.

I suspect the "AMD" ones are actually reference cards (vs. vendor cards) although I don't know if the vendors consistently name their cards in a way so consumers can tell that difference.
To my knowledge vendor custom cards do a bit more with OC and cooling and maybe have some special software with a bit of a price premium over reference designs.

Looks like it does not support PCIe 4.0 as far as I can tell. It's a "Mini ATX." If I remember correctly, the motherboard would not support a PSU above 400 or 500 watts.

HP Pavilion Desktop TP01-0066 has Ryzen 7 3700X. https://support.hp.com/us-en/produc...0a/37874144/model/31588445/document/c06465440

From https://support.hp.com/us-en/produc...0a/37874144/model/31588445/document/c06429270

HP Pavilion Desktop TP01-0066's Erica SSID 8643 motherboard has an AMD B550A chipset which is PCIe 3.0 and CPU TDP support is up to 65 watts.

The motherboard's PCIe 3.0 X16 slot should be able to support up to 75 watts as per PCIe X16 standard. The rest of the graphics card's power is from the power supply via PCIe power cables.

Ryzen 7 5800X and 5800X3D require an AM4 socket with 105 watts TDP support.

----

HP TP01 Erica motherboard may look like this.

HP-Pavilion-TG01-TG01-0023w-Erica-Motherboard-AM4-mATX.png

The motherboard doesn't have a 24-pin ATX power socket, hence the entire motherboard is powered by two 4-pin CPU power sockets.

A standard 4-pin CPU power socket can provide up to 192 watts which is enough for the motherboard's 65 watts AM4 and 75 watts PCIe X16 slot.

It looks like there are two 4 pin power connectors, 1 system, 1 cpu.

HP TP01 Erica motherboard is extremely cost reduced i.e. it's worst than the A520 motherboards from ASUS.
It's kind of amazing what you don't need just to run an AM4 CPU.

It supports a 65-watt TDP AM4 CPU and a single PCIe X16 slot. It's not designed for Ryzens above 65 watts TDP e.g. Ryzen 9 3900X / 3950X / 5900 / 5950, Ryzen 7 5800X / 5800X3D.

I had nothing but issues from ASUS on just about everything as well as XFX for video cards. IMHO with ASUS you are just buying the name brand as their quality control has decreased over the years.
And gigabytes has been non existent for a decade+

Till it fails and gigabyte claims you damaged it or got damaged in shipping.

LOL maybe 3950x/5950x in ECO mode.

Ordered a used AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT 16GB GDDR6 for $420 from a reputable seller that described it as being in perfect condition. I'm not seeing a ton of difference between used and new AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D CPUs. So I'm likely going to get a new one.

Edit. I hope someone doesn't jump out and tell me it's not compatible or something.

Ordered a used AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT 16GB GDDR6 for $420 from a reputable seller that described it as being in perfect condition. I'm not seeing a ton of difference between used and new AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D CPUs. So I'm likely going to get a new one.

Edit. I hope someone doesn't jump out and tell me it's not compatible or something.
Next new RAM and PSU... any thoughts on what you are going to get?

Someone once said that 105w label on the box is at a static 3700MHz.. I believe it. HWiNFO64 says all of my CPUs use/put out way more than what the box says.. even 58X3D can do 143w PPT..

By default, 3950X/5950X doesn't operate in ECO mode.
True but they won't pull much power entering UEFI/BIOS to change it to ECO mode assuming it would even post. It would be an interesting experiment for science!

I haven't done any research on RAM yet. With PSU, I'd think as long as the wattage is right (which I'm guessing is 750W or 850W for my setup), the brand shouldn't matter too much. Edit. But I do see some recommended brands on this thread.

Its why I Got the ARO M14G for this 5800 OEM, I treated it like a 5800X.

There are crap units and reputable units.

Do not skimp on the power supply at all

The "watts TDP" label doesn't refer to the CPU's max power consumption.

And gigabytes has been non existent for a decade+


Till it fails and gigabyte claims you damaged it or got damaged in shipping.

FYI, I have multiple X570 motherboards in my ground-floor home office and upper-floor living room i.e. ASUS ROG Strix X570 Gaming-E, ROG Strix X570 Gaming-F, and Gigabyte X570 UD.

My Ryzen 7 5800X, ASUS ROG Strix X570 Gaming-E, Gigabyte X570 UD, and MSI MAG X570 Tomahawk motherboards are obtained via auction bankruptcy, hence they are cheaply purchased. :D The motherboards are unopened boxes.

Ryzen 7 5800X / ASUS ROG Strix X570 Gaming-E replaced and sold my Intel Core i9 9900K (5 Ghz capable) / MSI MPG X390 Gaming Pro Carbon. I also sold MSI MAG X570 Tomahawk.

Only my ROG Strix X570 Gaming-F and MSI MPG X390 Gaming Pro Carbon were purchased at full retail price.

I have ROG Crosshair X670E Hero (displaced ROG Strix X570 Gaming-E) and TUF X670E Plus WiFi (displaced ROG Strix X570 Gaming-F) motherboards. I do have a small fleet of office PCs assigned for my accountant and bulk scanner operator contractors. My older gaming PCs are pushed into office PC roles.

I'm looking at ASRock...
