x570/B550 supports Ryzen 2000 series and 3000 series. It will support upcoming Zen 3 (4000 series) but will probably need a BIOS update. I believe it does not support 1000 series, but check motherboard CPU compatibility.

B450/x470 supports all Ryzen CPUs, but may require a BIOS update for Zen 2. At this point it will not support Zen 3, but there's a possibility (slim at this point) some motherboard makers will support Zen 3 with a BIOS update.

You need Zen 2 (3000 series) for PCIe 4.0 support.

There is no path besides a different x399 board for your cpu.

Unless you are doing something with a faster NVMe drive and need the extra speed, I wouldn't upgrade. I wouldn't upgrade just for video card support.
