Help choosing Mobo for current build

I'm building a computer for the first time and I want to know if the motherboard I was recommended is good enough and could I add bluetooth and WiFi to it?

 

Components on hand so far:

 

CPU: Ryzen 7 3700x 

GPU: MSi Ventus 3x GeForce 3070 8GB GDDR6 256-bit

RAM: Owl memory series x2 OLOy 32GB (16GB*2) 3600MHz 288-pin DDR4 SDRAM Note: this kit came as a combo with my 3070 on Newegg. Added it to my PC Part Picker list and there were no compatibility issues.

Storage: Samsung 970 EVO Plus 1 TB M.2 

MONITOR: ASUS Tuf Gaming VG 249Q 23.8 inch.

 

Stuff I have in my cart: 

Case: Rosewill Zircon T ATX MTower

PSU: SeaSonic FOCUS Plus Gold 750 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply

 

The motherboard I was recommended was the MSI X570-A PRO ATX AM4.

I recommend avoiding cheap MSI X570 boards, the Asus X570 Prime P might be a better call for you

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

Personally, I don't mess with MSI. I haven't had a good experience with them. Something X570 from ASUS or ASrock.

Would that be Pro or just P?

Thanks for the advice. I have an MSi gpu so I thought it would be a decent match. What's a decent price range for these other brand of mobos?

That's not really how that works. Using the same company for different parts doesn't really make a difference.

I don't know what your budget is so I guess a similar price to the other one?

I'm roughly $1,500 USD into my build. That was my max budget, but I'm willing to go a little higher since the only components left are the mobo and ssd. I don't really want to pay above $300 for a mobo unless its necessary. Sorry I didn't make myself clear on my og post.

I would get a RM750x, not this

 

As for mobo, I would get a B550-f GAMING 

I am still TechWizardThatNeedsHelp, just less of a mouthfull.

Those PSUs seem a little too much over my budget from what I've seen. I just heard that the Seasonics have a hybrid mode to save energy. But I've seen lots use the Corsair PSUs
