Three Motherboards

I have been looking for the right motherboard for my build, and have been recommended three in total. All are compatible with my build, but they vary in prices. I am looking for a few things in a motherboard and I would love if I could get all of them as cheap as possible. For my needs, which motherboard would be he best (taking price into consideration). All prices are in USD.



MSI - B350 PC MATE ATX AM4 Motherboard $53.50 (until 8/2)


ASRock - AB350M Pro4 Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard $49.99


ASRock - AB350 Pro4 ATX AM4 Motherboard $73.88



  • I would like 2 or more (preferably 4) slots of DDR4 Memory that also supports 3200 MHz
  • I need an RGB header
  • mATX or ATX board
  • My (planned) build: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/F7Rn8Y
  • I am also open to other suggestions. Before these three motherboards I was thinking about the MSI B350M Gaming Pro and a few other boards, so I will look at any other suggestions.
