Hi, i am building this PC:
- AMD Ryzen 5 3400g.
- 2x8 RAM 3200MHz.
- 1 TB HDD.

Which of these two motherboards should i get? (The price is pretty the same):
- Asus B450M-A Prime
- Gigabyte B450M DS3H

Is the ASUS better Overclocking? Has better VRM?
Thanks

neither are really built for oc but the gb would be a bit better. spend an extra $10 and get the gb aorus m, it has a way better vrm.

I have an Aorus B450M on a 3600 and it's perfect.. It's pretty much the same as that board but has better VRM cooling for about $10 more. Sadly I think I paid about $75 for the Aorus B450M, so it's actually gone up in price a bit

And if you have not bought the processor yet. Grab the $85 R5 1600AF ( low bin 2600 ) and something like an RX560 for a better experience overall.
