Windows 7: New Build? Bit Confused

New Build? Bit Confused


i think this thread is in the wrong place and if so i am sorry and i hope a mod can move it to the correct place =].

moving on...

im building my first Ryzen build and i would like peoples opinions

i have already bought a Ryzen 1700x and a ROG Strix B450-f Gaming
now due to budget i didnt go for a X range Mobo or a 2nd gen ryzen.
im planning on getting a Hyperx predator 8gb 2933mhz 1 stick for now as cash flow is very low so this build will take me a month or two to complete and i wanted to get a second to make 16gb so i can run dual channel, cooler for the Ryzen has been covered, im going to recycle my 212 Evo for it as i wont overclock right away and i have a mate who has the AM4 bracket, PSU 600w and SSD are recyled too, but will be changed with a M2 and a 750W psu as im going RGB on this build.
graphics on the otherhand i have a Vega 56 which acording to a fair few people is a decent card for this CPU and wont bottleneck like a b*****.

when funds become better better parts will be bought but for now is any of that alright as some say get a better cpu/mobo/psu all that but im not a millionair lol

p.s sorry for bad spelling.

650W Power Supply is recommended for that Graphics card. RGB should only take fractions of a watt, NOT 100 Watts.
Recycling SSD is a good idea. If you wanted to save money perhaps also consider recycling graphics card, as a PCIe 2.0 card should work in a PCIe 3.0 slot.
You will have difficulty running Ryzen Architecture plus mobo on Windows 7, as there is no driver support. So budget also for migrating to Windows 10.

You can install win 7 on a Ryzen. As Win 7 installation disk doesn't have some new drivers (MVMe, SATA and USB3.x) you need to add them to the installation disk.
Update your Win 7 installation media.
