Finally completing my new pc 

Order placed for r7 3700x 

Have a gigabyte 1080ti 

Corsair  Rx 1000 psu 

8 gb 2400 ram (which i will change soon )

Just need to order a new mobo 

So pls help me decide 

I don't do overclocking neither intend to

Just play games from time to time 

Nor looking forward to do sli .

Also i am on a tight budget 

Should a b450 suffice for good gaming experience or shall i go with some x470

Which will increase my budget and delay my ram 

Also i prefer asus board but my options are open

Thank you

Well I'm not aware of your specific budget or your region's pricing variances, but most b450 boards will be able to handle the 3700x just fine, although you may want to go with one that is "Ryzen 3000 ready" or that has bios flashback such as the MSI b450 tomahawk, but you can still go cheaper. I would skip x470 because the low-end boards are just the same as b450's, and if you have a little bit more to spend, I would go with the ASUS x570 Prime or ASUS x570 TUF Gaming. Both perform well above their price-points of $170 & $200 US and could even handle a 12 or 16 core in the future. Most b450's won't be able to comfortably handle an upgrade. 

 

So in summary:

MSI b450 Tomahawk (But you can go cheaper)

or

ASUS x570 Prime

or

ASUS x570 TUF gaming

 

Also, upgrade your RAM, that's going to be a HUGE bottleneck for that kind of system.


Ryzen 5 1600 @ 3.6Ghz w/ Arctic Freezer 33 Tower Cooler | MSI B450 Tomahawk |  32GB G.Skill Aegis @ 2933 MHz 

Sapphire RX 5700XT Pulse | EVGA 650w GQ 80+ Gold Semi-Modular  |  XPG SX6000 512GB Nvme SSD | NZXT H500

Acer XF270HU - 1440p 144Hz Freeesync IPS | Corsair Strafe - Cherry MX Red  |  Logitech G502

well even a AB350 Pro 4 is enough for a 7 3700x. Get MSI B450 thou, they have bios flashback so its neat, like B450 Gaming Plus, A-Pro,Tomahawk,Mortar,etc
