Yes, all the AM4 CPUs will work on all the AM4 motheboards (using newer CPU on older boards requires BIOS update, which is made easy with boards that support BIOS flashback). The only advantage by going with X570 though is PCI-E 4.0, which has very little benefit for most people. X570 boards due have a better minimum power delivery on average to be able to handle a CPU like the 3950X, but a lot of the previous gen boards are plenty capable (like the MSI one mentioned above). And B450 boards are a lot cheaper at the moment.
