I linked the 2400G because it has direct comparisons between it's APU and the GT 1030. The 2400G being the same as the 3400G, aside from the CPU aspect being 12nm instead of 14nm. That, and the direct comparison was done by a very well known and reputable site. I did check facts, and had an educated guess based on the facts of it all.

Also, the 1030 can be overclocked, the 3400G can be overclocked (with a b450 or better board).

Oh wow, nevermind then. Never knew the 3400G's APU is at GT1030 / GTX 750ti level now, lol. Sorry. Next time be sure to link benchmarks right out the gate, instead of doing the back and forth "no it's not" + insulting, before you got to link it. Would've saved us some time.

Provide them then. You have yet to provide any proof for yourself. Show me how the 3400G supposedly is better than the GT 1030.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "New pc cheap"

The difference between the 2400G and 3400G is 1-3fps, since they both use the exact same APU. The only difference between the two, is that the 2400G is running 14nm, and the 3200G is running 12nm.

Yes it is. https://www.gamersnexus.net/hwreviews/3261-r3-2200g-r5-2400g-review-gaming-benchmarks-vs-gt-1030 Regularly, the GT 1030 beats the R3 2200G / R5 2400G APU's, and only ever get close with an extensive overclock + very high speed RAM, both of which being very expensive in a budget build.

For doing music + 3D rendering work, the 8core 16thread Ryzen 7 2700 is definitely worth it over the 6core 12thread, first generation, Ryzen 5 1600. Only get the Ryzen 5 1600 if you're on a very tight budget.

For 900CAD + monitor, you're not going to get 60+fps and Ultra in most games, sorry. Especially with the 3000G, that'll hinder you extremely.

R5 2600 instead, better mobo for like 50 cents more, better SSD for the same price, 1650 Super instead, 50 cents more for the same case with tempered glass, better PSU, same monitor, and some fans. In the future, you can easily upgrade the GPU / CPU if you need more performance, but starting out with this ~900CAD budget (technicaly 700CAD with the monitor), you're not going to get 60+fps and Ultra in most games.

Ryzen 7 2700 instead, cheaper but near equal motherboard, much better SSD, 1650 Super instead of the RX 570, cheaper but still extremely good PSU, and a pack of PWM case fans since the case only comes with 1 fan.

What temperatures are you getting with the passive cooler, when under full load? (If you don't know, just download Aida64 and run it for like 10-30mins)

Your best options would be the B450 Steel Legend and the B450 Gaming Pro Carbon AC. The Aorus Pro does not have an addressable RGB header.

I'd go with the B450 Steel Legend, unless if you're fine with the cost.

Here you go. $500 budget, good CPU for budget multitasking, 3000mhz 16GB RAM, 240GB SSD, good compact case, great budget PSU, Quadro P620 since it has 4 mini-DisplayPort connections and is Nvidia, and it's worth spending $10 extra for the fans, so some air gets into the case and keeps everything cool.

Should fit your needs 100% perfectly.

mesh does tend to introduce more dust, but thats only because the case has much more, better airflow, than closed-off front cases. You can always buy 120mm fan filters if you need them

The 3600 would be a better buy, due to it's gaming benefits, and it's still 6core 12thread which is absolutely no slouch at editing either. Just be sure to get a MSI B450 MAX series board or a good X570

Never ever cut cables on a PSU. Very very very bad idea, could easily cause short circuits to happen, like, PSU-ruining ones, along with taking out other stuff that's plugged into your PSU if you don't have a high quality unit.

Some PSUs do have longer cables than others. Doesn't mean you shouldn't try managing the cables :P The trick is to just fold the cables up in a 2D-spring like pattern, then velcro strap. Works absolute wonders with managing!

There is no opening at the top. But, like I said, if you read my comment, top opening =/= airflow, mesh front = airflow. Top mount PSU just doubles as another exhaust. However, that doesn't change the fact that the case has extremely good airflow for it's price. Plus, it doesn't use insanely cheap metal, the fan doesn't suck, and the PCIe slots are not the cheap break-away type. It's a great case. The Cougar is too, don't get me wrong, just you'd need 1-2 more fans to really take advantage of the Cougar case's airflow. The Fractal Design one does amazingly well with it's single included fan.

I also have a non-modular PSU, but the cabling was done well. Just be smart and you can cable manage in any PC :P Here's a photo: https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/513794914182627331/673306653139009536/IMG_20200131_203405.jpg https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/513794914182627331/673306653541793792/IMG_20200131_203555.jpg

I have the case IRL, the airflow is extremely good. Even with my Arctic F12 at about ~800rpm, it moves a bunch of air inside the case, I can feel cool air blowing out of the side panel, and it being slightly windy inside of the case. The cable management is fine if you know what you're doing too.

Top opening =/= airflow, mesh front = airflow.

Also if he could afford, the CX550 is a better option than the CXM450. CX550 is the same price, and higher quality than the CXM units. (The CX units are a newer refresh, and higher quality.)
