What Mother board for Ryzen 1600?

I’m soon upgrading my specs for my pc build, changing the graphics card and cpu, I have decided on gtx 1070 Ti and Ryzen 5 1600 seems the best budget support for it. But thank fully I realized before pruchase that Ryzen needs to work on ddr4 ram. What amd motherboard supports Ryzen 1600 with ddr4 ram, and what ram should I buy?

SPECS OF BEFORE BUILD
Gigabyte GTX 1050
Amd fx-6300
Will update with mother board
I am planning to upgrade all three of these things

  1. Ideally B450 (most modern series)
    3200 Ram for ideal speed - 3000 is good, anything LESS than 3000 - DO NOT USE
    As for the 1070ti, it is a nice card, but look at the 2070, similar price and faster.

    Thanks a lot! Yeah I’m new to the individual numbers and models. but I’ll probably get 16 GB / 2 sticks of 3200 ram. Down the road I wanna get 2080 as the gpu upgrade, but I don’t want to spend too much money or bottle neck my cpu. I’ll get a gigabyte B450M amd! Thanks again!
  3. The 2600 gives a bit better performance for right at the same price in US dollars.

    That is not even a good answer the B350 should cost a bit less and run just fine with the 1600 and get at least 3000mhz memory. For the 20 series video cards unless they get the problem fix that some of the cards are having not something I would buy.

    Damn this site is helpful! However I think 2080 and 1070ti price is way different, it shows 799 for brand new and I’m getting a barely used 1070ti for 350.... I’m going to stick with this one, thanks though!

    For that price you can get better, get a Ryzen 7 with 8 cores.

    The 2600 is still faster till you get past 6 cores so still not a good answer. You can always buy a cheaper motherboard and up the processor.
  8. Thanks guys I got a 2600x and a b450 ds3h
