Ok then not a massive amount of choice for mATX. Seems there is only the ASRock one for X570. 

 

There is the MSI B450M Gaming Plus which is a decent board. It would be fine with a 3700X.

The Team MP34 1TB is cheaper than the Samsung.

I would get the NZXT C over the EVGA G3.

What "downgrades" would there be to the MSI board you mentioned.  Is the chipset going to make a big difference?  Cost difference is $80

 

I'm no familiar with that storage brand, I'll do some research. (this isn't exactly my arena) It is definitely cheaper.

 

I've changed out the PS in my shopping cart.  That one seems great and pricing is lower.

 

Thanks!

You lose out on pcie 4.0 and you might have things like extra SATA or USB ports etc on the X570 board. The MSI board only has 2 Ram slots, but as you are going with 32GB from the off if wouldn't really be an issue. It isn't a 'MAX' board so it might need a bios update, but the board does have bios flashback.

 

The Team MP34 is a good SSD for the money. A lot use the same controller, so a lot of times you are just paying extra/less depending on the brand. The Corsair MP510 and Sabrent Rocket both use the same Phison E12 controller as the Team MP34.

 

The money saved on the SSD and PSU should offset a lot of the cost if you wanted to stick with the X570 board.
