    Hey. Upgrading my really old PC. Reusing most of my hardware including my HD7970.

    I am upgrading to do Virtualization (I have a first gen i3 that does not support VT)
    I also will be playing COD and battlefield, which is almost playable on my current setup

    Core i3-540 to Ryzen 1700x is probably the most significant thing here. Pretty sure the i3 has been bottle-necking my GPU for years so I think it may work for COD still. I do plan on upgrading my GPU at some point as well. Figured I asked you guys before I shelled out the money. Decided on Ryzen based on productivity and Price.

    Ram compatibility on Ryzen in a b$%*h.

    Just helped a friends newphew with a Asus Prime B350-plus and R5 1600. Wouldn't boot with his single 8gb stick of 2400mhz Kingston HyperX, nor with a single stick of my Corsair Vengeance LPX 3000mhz.

    On a whim i put my full dual channel kit in and it booted to bios. Updated the bios with the latest version and now it works fine with this original stick of HyperX
