But a B450 motherboard will do everything you need for less $$.
$280 for an RX590 is a tough sell for me when RX580 8GB are $200. That's 40% more cost for 10% performance improvement. The RX580 will be plenty for 1080p 60Hz

I am not sure two more physical cores vs a higher clock speed really going help in gaming. I certainly can go up in budget, but 1080p still seems a sweet spot in teams of clarity for your buck. If anything I could be convinced into getting a better monitor and higher end graphics card.

Wait, should I worry about it being compatible with my AMD build?
