B550 is better than X570? 

Why does X570 not have the 2.5 LAN ?

The main difference is that x570 is gen 4 across the whole board, and b550 allows the lanes that are wired to the cpu to be gen 4, while the lanes that are wired to the chipset is gen 3, unless you need the extra gen 4 lanes, b550 is just as good.

iirc, 2.5 was still kind of a new feature on boards  when x570 was released, now that it's kind of a normal thing, it's there on b550 boards.

All the boards suggested above are good and will easily handle the 3900x.
