Hmmm gonna jinx myself by asking probably, I'm seeing an Asrock 450M pro4 and Ryzen 5 1600 AF on sale locally for $150 Canadian. Seems like it would be a nicely quick upgrade for me. The motherboard is quite appealing as it has PS/2 and a serial header. Seems like Asrock are good about updating for new CPU so could later take a Zen3 or possibly later if despite new socket AMD still have new cores on AM4. CPU seems like it's a slightly detuned, 200mhz slower R5 2600.
Am I getting decent bang per buck? I'm not seeing much else, maybe 4th gen i5 for around this money.
