I’ve got about £550 to spend on motherboard, CPU (Ryzen 5 2600?) and memory (32Gb with room to expand) on a new proxmox server to run Home Assistant, a debian VM for a 3D printing slicer and basic cad package. Ultimately I’ll probably add a windows server for blue Iris.
I’ll retain the power supply (https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/product/bkp323/seasonic-focus-plus-gold-550w-80-gold-certified-fully-modular-atx-power-supply-ssr-550fx) , the low end video card ( https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/product/rtnG3C/msi-video-card-gt7101gd3hlp and SSD from my current build. I’m aware the video card will probably need upgrading for the windows VM.
I’m pretty much convinced to go AMD processor and am drawn to the Asrock rack X470D4U, but am nervous about some of the issues people are experiencing and am thinking that at this stage a more mainstream board would be cheaper and allow for better CPU and more / faster RAM.
I don’t want / need the LED support found on many of the boards focused on gaming, but would appreciate advice on the motherboard options.
Thanks in advance
