Building Mini PC - Need mini-itx motherboard recommendation for 5700G

Do you need PCIe 4.0 storage? You could get by with something like an A520 ITX motherboard and they run just over $100, but they only use PCIe 3.0.

Otherwise, I'd just buy a B550 ITX motherboard from any reputable company and you should be fine. I had the GB B550 Aorus Pro AX board and it worked great, but I wouldn't hesitate to use the Asus or even MSI. ASRock might be cheaper and will probably have weaker VRMs, but you're not looking to go crazy since you only have a 200W PSU anyway, so that might work also.

Memory wise, the price/performance sweet spot is probably going to be DDR4 3600. If you find a good deal on DDR4 4000, maybe buy that, but I wouldn't go over that as you'll have to tweak the infinity fabric divider.
I would look for a decent B450, MSI had a really good one. If you can still find one for a reasonable price.
