        Cooler is included. So you need some RAM and HDD too, right?

          I was asking about the board and power supply because I assume the other components would be close enough to the same on comparable systems.

            There is something that baffles me here.

            "DDR4 Support" at the side of the motherboard. Are there any Ryzen motherboards that don't support DDR4?

              It's an AM4 processor, so it's apples to apples for the 5 out of 6 AM4 chipsets this processor will work with. The power supply is even more generic since at a 35W TDP just about any desktop power supply will be sufficient. As mentioned previously, a stock cooler is included.

              Ryzen? Absolutely not.
              AM4 on the other hand? Absolutely not.

              It's just marketing. I remembered that AM4 came out ahead of Ryzen with a few Bristol Ridge APU's but those were *also* DDR4.

                  SpecificationsMfr Part Number: NT-DESKMINI A300W
                  No CPU, No Memory, No HDD, No ODD, No OS
                  So that doesn't include what you'd asked for.
                  ~$55 https://www.newegg.com/asrock-a320m-...82E16813157872
                  ~$60 https://www.newegg.com/solid-gear-fl...9SIA6PW2FB0228
                  ~$60 https://www.newegg.com/p/274-000M-00...01B8-_-Product

                  But it looks like ~$175 is about what it would cost. You could skimp more on the power supply, and that AM4 board can support just about any Ryzen processor.
