Best value MOBO for Ryzen 3 3100 and RTX 2060?

Hey everyone, I recently bought parts for my first build, but I'm doubting my choice of motherboard. I chose the Gigabyte B550M DS3H without as it was recommended to me by another forum user who said it would be good for upgrading CPU and eventually GPU later. However, I'm seeing that it struggles compared to other boards in the same price range when paired with a powerful CPU. I plan on gaming at 1440p60 high-max settings. I do not plan on using productivity tools or other CPU-intensive, multi-core programs. I know very little about motherboards, so I'm hoping you all can help me learn.

I bought the board because I want to be able to upgrade my CPU in a few years' time, but I'm realizing it might not be worth trying to future-proof on a budget. If you think it would be more economical to buy an efficient board that handles these parts, please let me know. I'm also curious exactly what features I should be looking for in a gaming motherboard.


Thanks in advance for your help!

Asrock B550 Pro4, if you need 6 SATA port, that gigabyte only has 4.

Thanks for the advice. My storage is NVMe, though, so I don't think the number of SATA ports will affect me, right?
