Pro 4 is a good cheap board, B450 Tomahawk is a great budget board for overclocking

Don't overlook the mATX boards, they are usually cheaper.  With the non X series chip, you can do a b450 as you probably won't overclock it.

Consider getting higher speed ram, but this will also require a more efficient board to handle the overclock, but you don't need much.  Just avoid bottom barrel brands.

Something like this (it's got 4 ram slots vs 2 for the same price)

Gigabyte B450 Aorus would that be a fitting choice for a mATX ? I don't really plan on overclocking (but of course if i change my mind it would be great to have)

Ballistix Sport DDR4, 3000 MT/s, PC4-24000 for ram ?

Some Crucial Ballistix Sport 2666 2x4GB with meh timings. The board has 4 DIMM slots so there is nice upgradability.

Most people look for ATX boards with all the bells and whistles when they don't need them.

 

 The 1700 Vs 1800x at launch for overclocking was a joke, but the 2600 chip doesn't overclocking as well as it's X brother.  If you're buying a 2600, you don't buy it because it can oc like a madman, you buy it for budget and performance.

 

Also, most inexpensive boards don't have the vrm or heatskins to support a large overclock.
