So this is my first time building a pc and I'm still learning about parts as I go but I may have made a mistake today.
I bought an Asus x570 Tuf gaming wifi and was looking for a cpu to pair with it. Then today comes by with a huge discount on a Ryzen 2700x (259 CAD, I know it has been cheaper but needed a cpu). So I decided to go with it and bought it.
As I'm doing more research on pc parts in general after buying it, I come across something on about the ryzen 2700x not really worth it being paired with a x570. Apparently it bottlenecks what the Mobo can do (and ram speed and etc).
Is this true? Did I waste my money and build in doing this?
