Hello all, I tried contacting Gigabyte support about a week ago but no reply as of this writing so I am hoping you guys here can help please?

Friend bought a gaming pc with this Mobo but needs a new power supply, video card and ram sticks. What we would like to know for sure before purchasing the wrong items is if anyone can guide us to the correct items which will be compatible and optimized for this mobo, any leads/advice will be appreciated, Thanks.

FX-8350 8-core I assume.

Probably 8GB RAM is OK and PSU I can check when I know what kind of GPU he needs. Is this rig going for gaming or just basic use?

Thanks, for gaming use, Amos doesn;t mind paying for something good just not top of the line or THE best is in his budget which is why I had mentioned medium pricing.

Memory https://pcpartpicker.com/product/2tPfrH/a-data-memory-ax3u1866w4g10dr
Power supply https://pcpartpicker.com/product/nB3RsY/seasonic-power-supply-s12ii620bronze

For video card, prices are very high right now but used older Radeon cards have pretty good prices. Look for following models: R9 270, R9 270X, R9 280, R9 280X, R9 370, R9 370X, R9 380, R9 380X.

All of those are OK for medium gaming and there are very good prices for those. For new cards, something like this is OK https://pcpartpicker.com/product/7vX2FT/powercolor-radeon-rx-560-2gb-red-dragon-oc-v3-video-card-axrx-560-2gbd5-dhv3oc

I would avoid more expensive cards right now.
