Currently running with an ASRock B450 Pro4, Ryzen 5 3600, and 2060 ATX card from Gigibyte. If 30' series cards ever come back down to something within my price range, I'm wondering what type of boards I'd be looking at to keep everything compatible - but, that seems a pretty big if - for now, I'll just remain thankful that I bought my 2060 when I did. 😅

As mentioned above, a 30 series gpu will work fine in your current board, as pcie 4.0 is backwards compatible.

I'm confused. Why wouldn't a 30 series work in your current board? 

Making sure your power supply is good enough would be my only concern going to a bigger GPU.

All the newest stuff will work.

Don't worry about it.
