What is the difference between b450 and b350 chipset?

B350 is for 1st gen Ryzen

B450 is for 2nd gen Ryzen

 

 

That said, 2nd gen Ryzen will work in B350 as well BUT you must update the BIOS first which means that you have to have a 1st gen Ryzen CPU in the first place to do that.

So in your case, just get B450.

B450 guarantees support for 2000 series Ryzen CPUs out of the box while you still have a chance to get a B350 chipset which needs a BIOS update before it will work with 2000 series chips.

I was wondering is there any difference bettwen B350 motherboard ( https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/GA-AB350M-DS3H-rev-1x#kf ) and this one with B450 chipset( https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/B450M-DS3H-rev-10#kf )? 

I want to point out that I wanted to use them with ryzen 5 2600 without overclocking it.

explained enough... not a big fan of the DS3H series in general. it's more meant for business than for gaming, I would recommend getting a different B450 board

There is no difference in gaming or business use on a motherboard. Unless shiny RBG = gaming?

If OP is not overclocking I don't see what he would gain with another board.
