Question Asus ROG Strix B550-F Gaming WIFI vs MSI MPG B550 Gaming Edge WIFI

Aug 28, 2021
Which one of these boards for the 5600x? I know the msi has front usb-c and the Asus has Intel LAN vs Realtek on MSI

Does the Intel LAN really matter for FPS games? Or it's an old issue and now and they're both good?
I think the Intel network interface will make a difference only on highly congested subnets. If you're in your home behind a DOCIS router with only 5 or 6 devices sharing the subnet it's not going to matter.

If your case can use the front panel USB-C and it's also useful to you that would be a better discriminator. Otherwise, it's a hard choice as both are excellent boards.
