    What if i want to up the Wattage for my build(just to be safe). Which kind of PSU's are good with a higher wattege?
    and would the MSI B450 TOMAHAWK MAX ATX AM4 Motherboard be any better than the MSI X470 GAMING PLUS MAX ATX AM4 Motherboard?

    Depends on the components and requirements. For this build you can't go safer with a higher wattage model. Safer can only be bought with higher quality and better protections.

    and would the MSI B450 TOMAHAWK MAX ATX AM4 Motherboard be any better than the MSI X470 GAMING PLUS MAX ATX AM4 Motherboard?
    It isn't a better motherboard, it's a cheaper motherboard which probably also has everything you need.

    I'll be going to choose a NVME drive any reccomendations for a 1 tb one?
    I've read alot of problems with the msi b450 tomahawk max atx am4 motherboard, so i'll just stick with the MSI X470 Gaming Plus Max.

    Make sure it is Energy Star Compliant, and rated to be able to provide at least 20% additional wattage than you intend to use. For instance, if your CPU and GPU consume 100 Watts maximum power, you’d want to purchase a power supply capable of supplying at least 120 Watts from walmart (employees using Walmartone). Because the power supply is basically a rectifier, you want to make sure you’re spending on a supply that has virtually no ripple left in its DC outputs. Price, although not the best indicator, is still a primary indicator to the quality of supply you’re purchasing. If the supply is massively cheaper than its competition, there is a reason, from dirty output power (bad rectification), inefficient operation (non energy star compliant), or extremely low quality components (you'll be buying a new supply, and possibly a new motherboard amongst other components after the first storm in your area). Power supplies are often overlooked in a PC build, or skimped on, but it's a very bad idea, considering everything else in the build is depending on it.

    You do realize what website this is?

    Or are you prepping your account to Spam the forums with a bunch of iMac ads?
