This AMD Ryzen motherboard for $84 is a great start for a compact gaming PC

As the model name suggests, the B550M Pro-VDH WiFi is built around AMD’s budget-friendly B550 chipset. This one doesn’t normally sell for under $100, but it’s priced that way now, making it a great candidate for a compact build focused on getting a lot of bang for your buck.

Some notable features include four DIMM slots supporting up to 128GB of DDR4-4400 memory, two M.2 sockets for high-speed storage, four SATA 6Gbps ports, a PCI Express x16 slot for when you finally get your hands on a discrete GPU, and a decent selection of USB ports.

It also includes some amenities normally reserved for pricier motherboards, like a built-in M.2 heat spreader, onboard Wi-Fi, and BIOS flash button that makes it easy to update the BIOS without a CPU installed.

Speaking of the BIOS feature, you may need to update it if you plan to pair this board with a Ryzen 5000G series APU. It just depends on how long Newegg has been sitting on its inventory. A BIOS update released in late June (7C95v28) adds support for the 5000G series, and there is also a beta BIOS (7C95v291) released today that is supposed to improve stability.
