Where are you buying from?
sethaithanan wroteWith that said, does this build make sense?

EDIT: I will upgrade RAM and SSD in the future, no more money rn.
It says that some B350's might need a bios update, but the AM4 Tomahawk supports 2nd gen Ryzen chips, from what I read up.
All B350 motherboards support 2nd gen Ryzen, but they all need to have the appropriate BIOS to support the new CPUs/APUs. Whether the motherboard you get has the compatible BIOS is totally random, unless you specifically ask wherver you purchase from to update the mobo to the latest stable BIOS for you.
Also, no, that build isn't particularly good. It isn't terrible, and would work(with the correct motherboard BIOS) but it could absolutely be improved.
