MSI B450 Carbon AC is the best option but at $140. At below $100 there are only two options, the Gigabyte B450M DS3H WiFi and Asrock B450M/AC, both pretty bad in overclocking tho they should at least overclock the 3500 no problem.

If you don't need Bluetooth, there's plenty of powerful and reasonably priced wireless cards, from around 30$ to 50$

For example:

 

27$ : TP-Link Archer T4E AC1200 Wireless Dual Band PCI Express Adapter - Newegg.com

39$ : TP-Link Archer T6E PCI Express AC1300 Wireless Dual Band PCI Express Adapter - Newegg.com

 

Even if you want Bluetooth, there's options, here's some examples:

 

35$ : (bluetooth 4.2 support) ASUS PCE-AC55BT B1 AC1200 Wireless Bluetooth 4.2 PCIe/Mpcie Adapter - Newegg.com

52$ : (bluetooth 5, up to 1733 mbps) ASUS PCE-AC58BT PCI Express AC2100 Dual-Band PCIe 160 MHz Wi-Fi Adapter - Newegg.com

 

You can plug them in a pci-e x1 slot and they're work fine.

 

This would allow you to buy decent motherboards like MSI B450-A Pro or MSI B450 Gaming Plus / MSI B450M Gaming Plus

 

100$ : MSI PRO B450-A PRO MAX AM4 ATX AMD Motherboard - Newegg.com

100$ : MSI B450 GAMING PLUS MAX AM4 AMD B450 SATA 6Gb/s ATX AMD Motherboard - Newegg.com

115$ : MSI B450 TOMAHAWK MAX AM4 ATX AMD Motherboard - Newegg.com

 

If you go over 150$, it's not worth it, as you're getting into x570 motherboards with built-in wifi

 

165$ : ASRock X570 PHANTOM GAMING 4 WIFI AX AM4 ATX AMD Motherboard - Newegg.com

10100 : B450 Gaming Plus MAX Amazon.in: Buy MSI B450 Gaming Plus MAX ATX Gaming Motherboard Online at Low Prices in India | MSI Reviews & Ratings

 

10244 : B450M Gaming Plus (mATX Gaming Plus)  Amazon.in: Buy MSI Performance Gaming AMD Ryzen 1st and 2nd Gen AM4 M.2 USB 3 DDR4 DVI HDMI Micro-ATX Motherboard (B450M Gaming Plus) Online at Low Prices in India | MSI Reviews & Ratings

 

10700 : Tomohawk MAX Amazon.in: Buy MSI B450 Tomahawk MAX ATX Gaming Motherboard Online at Low Prices in India | MSI Reviews & Ratings

12200 : Tomohawk Amazon.in: Buy MSI Arsenal Gaming AMD Ryzen 1st and 2nd Gen AM4 M.2 USB 3 DDR4 DVI HDMI Crossfire ATX Motherboard (B450 Tomahawk) Online at Low Prices in India | MSI Reviews & Ratings

 

The difference between regular and MAX is that the MAX models have a bigger BIOS chip. The non-MAX have a more text like bios, with grayscale icons and smaller icons, the MAX versions have more colorful icons and more graphical stuff in the BIOS. From hardware point of view, the boards are the same, and you don't lose any features or BIOS options  if you go with the non-MAX model. 

Some are more expensive (ex regular Tomohawk vs Tomohawk MAX) for stupid reasons, if MAX version is cheaper pick that one.

 

At 10700 the Tomohawk MAX is a great deal.

Get B450M gaming plus, if you find a good deal on a mATX case. Otherwise, the regular B450 Gaming Plus makes more sense.

 

B450-A Pro is only on Newegg, can't see it on Amazon.in

If it were available, it should be at around 9000 of your coin.

They are quite expensive 😬. Will have to talk to parents to extend the budget since I still have to buy peripherals..

Any other option for around 6-7 or 8k INR?

If your budget is so tight, go with 2600 instead of 3600. 

 

I suppose you could go with 7000 INR MSI B450M PRO-VDH MAX : https://www.amazon.in/dp/B07WC724Z7

 

It won't be as good for overclocking, but it will handle a 3600 just fine.

 

For me here in India ,

R5 2600 is costlier than R5 3500 and R5 3600 is more expensive than both of them
