  1. Can I use Asus tuf x570 motherboard with ryzen 3 3200g and I don’t need you so can I manage my budget while keeping this motherboard …I need this board for future proofing

    1. Yes you can use that Abhyuday. But will AMD change the socket in future? 🙂

  2. m5a97 le r2.0 as you mensioned but now i see the image is of the one which i bought but the discription is of non le version i am also ok with that what are the differences between me and non le version, will i be able to unleash 750ti on it with cooler master tunder 500 watt psu also will i be able to power it by 6pin connector at last please tell me that my rig have have a 6pin connrctor or not . also where is that connector present and how to identyfy its presence.

    1. I got my 750ti ,m5a97,cosair vs 450 watt , are they fully compatible ? Will I run in mess for cables? Don’t care that I have not bought the 500watt one PSU because I will not upgrade in future

    2. The problem is that I can’t get it done by a professional because every shop I viseted to look up for parts was filled with low educated mechanics who don’t know the difference between USB 2.0 and 3.0?

  3. Sir, I saw that you suggested to viewer #abhishek to use 500watt PSU with 750ti but I don’t think I require more than 400watt PSU (keeping 50 watt head room) also I don’t think that there is any real time difference between 2×4 and 1×8 GB rams in fact 1x8gb ram would cost a 1k less

    1. what if you plan to get the 960 may be a year down the line so better to get a decent PSU. there is a performance variance of 2-3% for two dual channel rams vs a single stick. Though no harm in buying a single one also.

  4. AM I disturbing by adding 2 comments, I will use Kingston hyper x single 8gb 1866 MHz ram , I am on tight buged is it OK ?

    1. One of my friend can get me a 1x8gb 1600mhz hyperx ram for 2400.is the deal OK the ram is in brand new condition (the friend is olx.in?)

    2. I know that the gtx 750ti don’t require a 6 pin connector but it is listed necessary on zotac 750ti 2gb on snapdeal , am I right or are the right??

  5. As per watching the full spec I can’t find any display conn. On it ? Can I buy it with s224ol, fx 6300,750ti and 450 watt cosair vs 450.

    1. Ok then, would Kingston hyperx fury 1x 8gb 1600mhz work? If not then please suggest me a 1x8gb ram under 4k for Asus mm5a97 le re

  6. Nice picks !! I like the MSI 970 over AsRock for the striking looks 😉 but i agree it’s a little more pricey..

    1. Hi,

      You can refer our buying guide here please write to us with what you have in mind or what is chosen by you we will help to add inputs to it

  7. Hey.. As u said gigabyte 78lmt-usb3 doesnt support 1600mhz frequency RAM ri8? Bt u suggest 1600mhz frequency RAM with 78lmt in ur Best PC Configuration for Gaming PC build for Rs. 40,000 article!!! Some people says new rev. 5.O mobo supports upto 1600mhz .. Confused please clarify this issue ASAP .. TY

    1. Dear Ajit,

      It surely supports 1333mhZ RAM as per Gigabyte official website as well, though as per user reviews after Bios update it can support 1600 but not 100% clarity, we have also updated the info on the previous post after checking with Gigabyte customer care as they also were not sure. Better buy a 1333 MHZ. with the Gigabyte 78lmt-usb3 motherboard till there is an official update.
