    Probably going with the 5 2600x.

    I have three in mind but would like some input. Criteria are OC capable, X470 - (hoping it will be ready for the new stuff coming out) 3200 capable RAM or higher. Don't need WIFI. Almost forgot. Needs least one m.2 socket.

    1. Gigabyte: qhttps://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813145060&Description=GIGABYTE%20X470%20AORUS&cm_re=GIGABYTE_X470_AORUS-_-13-145-060-_-Product

    2. Asus: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813119107&Description=asus X470 &cm_re=asus_X470-_-13-119-107-_-Product

    3. MSI: ht.tps://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813144177&ignorebbr=1

    I really liked the Gigabyte but I just noticed it got a lot of really bad reviews. Anyone else had problems with Gigabyte? I've had one for over a year in my FX8350 AM3 system and couldn't be happier. Maybe I just got lucky?

    Bang for the buck, that's a tough deal to beat right now. I think that's a significantly better board than anything you linked and within ~$25-30 of some of the boards you linked. I've found with Ryzen systems you kind of get what you pay for. I had middling compatibility with cheap B350 boards. I pay for a Crosshair VII and it was night and day. The Taichi would probably be 2nd on my list after the Crosshair and at $165 AR tough to beat.

    I went with the Asus ROG Strix B450-F Gaming (not sure if I got the order right there) I'm only going to use one video card, and probably no more than 1 NVMe drive in the future, so I saw no need for all the "extra" with the X470 chipset. So traded that $ for the better sound-chip on the B450-F vs what you'll find on the TUF X470.

    Only mistake I made was assuming it had the onboard header for the USB-C front panel connector on my Fractal Design R6 case. It does not. Got my research/board pick mixed up at some point there.
