Is it worth upgrading my motherboard?

Hey guys and gals,

I am a noob at PC building and all that voodoo magic stuff.

Is it worth upgrading my motherboard, an MSI X370 Gaming Pro?

I have Ryzen 1700x, couple with an RTX 2060 and I am really unsure if a motherboard upgrade would bring me any benefit. 
I am a casual gamer and surf the web, thats about it.

 

Any help or guidance would be grand

with a cpu like that i don’t think it will bring much benefit, you’d be better off upgrading cpu and then getting a b450+ motherboard.
