What Motherboard would you recommend for a 600 dollar Ryzen build?

MSI's B450M PRO-VDH Max and Asrock's B450(M) Pro4 would be a couple solid, budget options that I would consider.

Boards cheaper than that sacrifice on a lot of things, while not really being that much less expensive to make them worthwhile.

Desktop: Intel Core i9-9900K | be quiet! Dark Rock Pro 4 | ASUS Strix Z390-F | G.Skill Trident Z Neo 2x16GB 3200MHz CL14-14-14-34 | EVGA GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER XC Ultra | Corsair RM650x | Fractal Design Define R6

Laptop: 2018 Apple MacBook Pro 13"  --  i5-8259U | 8GB LPDDR3 | 512GB NVMe | macOS Big Sur

Peripherals: Leopold FC660C w/ Topre Silent 45g | Logitech MX Master 3 & Razer Basilisk X HyperSpeed | Beyerdynamic Custom One Pro Plus | Audio-Technica AT2020USB+

Displays: Alienware AW2521HF & BenQ BL2420PT

It depends what else is gonna be besides that cpu. 

You could have a 100$ video card or you could have a 300$ video card. 

it also depends if you plan to upgrade in the future to something more powerful and also if you need various features like usb 3.1gen2 (10gbps) or wireless - do you get a budget board with no wireless and which can barely handle a 12 core Ryzen, or would you pay 10-20$ more to get wireless and assurance it will support even 16 core processors in the future? 

It also depends if you will have money in the future or not - you could buy only a 500 GB SSD now, and buy a mechanical drive next month. 

You could buy a single stick of 8 GB ram and buy a 2nd 20-25$ stick next month - that 20-25$ can make a whole lot of difference in the motherboard selection or the video card choice (20$ extra on video card can really improve games)

 

Here's a build that stretches it to 617$  and you'll have to get a 2nd stick of ram later, but you get quality motherboard and decent video card

If you absolutely have to, though you shouldn't, you could cut corners at the psu, there's a Corsair CX 450w psu for 39$ after 15$ mail-in rebate at Newegg right now : pc part picker link

 

You get a solid mobo with wireless and support for Ryzen 5xxx processors, you get good video card, you get good nvme ssd etc 

 

Another option would be to go with an AMD 5500XT card, at around 180$, saving you 25$ to get the build at 600$ , or to buy the 2nd stick of ram. 

The 5500xt should be 5-10% slower than a 1660 card... here's a comparison between card models: https://www.techpowerup.com/review/msi-radeon-rx-5500-xt-gaming-x-8-gb/27.html

 

Example : 180$ (after 10$ mail-in rebate) https://pcpartpicker.com/product/ybwkcf/msi-radeon-rx-5500-xt-8-gb-mech-oc-video-card-rx-5500-xt-mech-8g-oc

I can also recommend the asrock B450. Decent value for money without any fancy esthetics or heatsinks.
