00:04 - It goes without saying that I meant B550, not B450. Herpa derpa lerp. What do you guys think of the board's features vs. its price?

Hi everyone, can someone be so gentle to help me? I can't find answers.. I'm not an expert, I'm building my first PC. Is the ASUS ROG STRIX B550-F Gaming WI-FI a nice choise for this build: CPU - Ryzen 7 3700x Grapich Card - GIGABYTE Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER (8 GB, Gaming) RAM - G.Skill Trident Z RGB (2x16 GB) SSD - Samsung 970 EVO Plus (1000GB, M.2 2280) PSU - Corsair RM850 2019 (850W) CPU Cooler - Cooler Master Liquid ML240L RGB (5.20cm) Can you tell me if everything will work? Is an MSI MPG X570 Gaming Pro Carbon Wifi a better choice? Thank you so much for your time!
F-22raptor Vor 4 Monate
I'd go with msi b550. I've always had msi and its the best. And don't get a gpu rn new ones are coming soon. But other than that its great. Make sure ram is 3200+, and you can go with a lower watt psu if its less expensive to save a bit. And one more thing make sure your ssd is pcie 4.0 to take advantage of motherboard

So far in my experience with using MSI MAG B550 Mortar Wifi. It's crazy overpriced for what it is. The VRMs are the same 4x2 phases as my X470 Gaming Plus and Gaming Pro motherboards. I paid $99 and $89 respectively for those 400 series motherboards, pre-owned. New those boards would probably been $130. $169 for the B550 new is a yikes.

I am looking to change motherboards just for personal reasons (RGB software and the lack of and internal Typec connector) but i am wondering if it is worth getting another x570 board or going with B550? what would i lose feature wise and also for reference i have a Ryzen 7 3800x. Just wondering because B550 is cheaper and the other motherboard i would use in another build for someone else

Okay you say the B450 Tomahawk is about $115 usd. But I everywhere I look it's $200+ usd. Tomahawk or Tomahawk Max. Did demand drive that up in a month? If so the B550 Tomahawk is a steal at $180 usd. Do I need to get the B550 before it's price gets driven up?
