What's the best budget motherboard for a 3400G?

I have a 3400G build, but I still need a motherboard. The local market is pretty messed up, and almost everything is out of stock. Here's what's available:

I know that the B550 motherboards aren't compatible with the 3400G, but is there a BIOS update for the Gigabyte B550M DS3H ($130) that would fix the compatibility?

I don't live in the US, so these prices include taxes and shipping. Which one should I get?

Thank you.

what parts have you already bought? cause 3400g is pretty crap and i think youd have been better off with a 1200 + used rx 570/580

You won't get any useful features from B550 for your 3400G, it would be waste of money unless you really need full Pcie4.0 bandwidth, on future CPU, G-series CPUs don't support Pcie 4.0 on B550.

I have this one, it drives my 5600 CPU, not sure about anything faster.
