Yeah you are right, I think the 1650 would be fine. On the motherboard, the main thing i wanted was the Z490 chip set and as many m2 slots as I could get (future expansion) - it has 3. It also claims to be PCIe gen4 ready which seems like a good thing considering how long I typically use a pc (the last one I built 4 years ago). The wireless I could do without. I also don't need raid. Is there a cheaper, quality motherboard you recommend that is "future proof" with a lot of m2 slots? Thanks a lot for your help!
