YesDoes the 3000 ready label imply the bios on this mobo is ready for my chip?
You're not taking a performance hit.f i'm not taking a performance hit with my current hardware, on the board below.
Buying a component you want to upgrade already is almost always the wrong move. if you have an itch to upgrade the B450 relatively soon and that itch will keep coming back, just return it and get the X570 now.should I just use this for the $100 now, wait one week and get an X570 or wait for the next gen mobo wars to happen and buy the upgrade when I need it?

wow. Thanks. I’m bummed. Out of stock by the time I got there. Really appreciate it$300? best Buy seem to have the wifi version for $190 and seem to have the option to ship?
I added it to the cart and it said free shipping available to 04785, whatever that is. (Edit: google tells me Van Buren in Maine)
It's listed on Newegg too but Newegg especially and some other retailers see I'm in the UK and go all wibbly about showing whether a product is in stock or not in the US store. So the TUF (wifi and non-wifi) seem to be out of stock on newegg but I can't be sure.
Looks pretty in-stock in Best Buy though unless they don't deliver to your area / offer curbside pickup near you.
Hi. The WD HDD 7200 is 2tb and was $109, I realize not really massive. Considering the 1tb wD black gaming mve SSD was $170How big is the HDD and how much does it cost? Having a large HDD for secondary storage is very common; using an SSD for mass storage e.g. music and movies is a waste of money.
That makes sense. Maybe I just add another 1tb SSD for now and I can always add another if I need and skip the HDD altogether. I can keep photos on my existing external drives as well.That's a data centre HDD - you should generally be able to get a consumer drive of 4TB for that price. Or a 2TB HDD for half the price.
If it's about reliability, then buying a single, more expensive drive isn't as safe as buying 2 HDDs and using one as a backup, which you could afford to do for pretty well the same price.
What's the question? That you're unsure what these other front IOs are?Hi, I’m reading through the ASUS Tuf manual and I thought this mobo only had front Panel IO for audio. The manual under front IO section 2.1.7 shows usb 3.2 gen 1 and USB 2.0 connector in addition to audio
You'll want to plan a little ahead storage wise. If you buy 2 x 1TB SSDs and then fill them up, and then get another 1TB SSD, you end up with multiple 'small'(er) drives to faff around with and juggle content between. Whereas if you suspect you may need more storage and so in addition to your 1TB NVMe you buy a (e.g.) 2TB Crucial MX500, you end up with a tidier case and an easier to manage storage setup.Hi, yes I have photos on two external drives and I think I’m going to put them in cloud storage well. Storage will be music applications, games phot editing, not that much video. Kind of an everything computer. I don’t have a particular storage map in mind. I figured a 1tb was good stuff I’m regularly using and the second drive to store photos etc and possibly some bigger programs that aren’t very important. Should I just stick to my 1 tb mve ssd and maybe a 1tb SSd?
