I currently have an Asus x470 rog strix f running a 3800x. Would it be worth it to upgrade this to a newer board for the 5600x? If so which board? Max budget around $175. Thanks!

5600x is stronger than the 3700x in a lot of things but, the extra 2 cores/4 threads will help the the 3700x in others. Look around for benchmarks. The 5600x is $300 US if you can find one. A MSI mag b550 tomahawk is roughly 175 your max. These are excellent boards. is not msi providing bios updates for the board in question ?

No reason to unless you need gen4 for nvme speed in particular.

I think you should stick with your x470. However, if you need an upgrade then ASRock X570 Phantom Gaming 4S & Asus Prime X570-P or an MSI B550-A PRO are under your budget.
