I am building my first PC, and have decided that I want to go with an AMD Ryzen CPU, particularly, the Ryzen 2700x. I know all my other parts but I don't know whether to choose the GIGABYTE X470 AORUS Gaming 5 WiFi, or the ASUS ROG Strix X470-F Gaming. I don't really need wifi, because I will be running a wired connection. I don't care about aesthetics or RGB lighting. I want to, at some point, overclock my CPU. I'm looking to keep this motherboard for at lest 4-5 years. I have already bought 16gb of Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 RAM running at 3200mhz, and I have a Samsung 970 evo m.2 ssd. I live in Canada, and currently the price is CDN$ 244.99 for the ASUS motherboard and CDN$ 219.99 for the GIGABYTE AORUS motherboard. I'm fine with both prices. So what do you think I should get? Or is there a better option out there in the $200 to $266 range?

Asus x470 F hands down. The VRM's are quite sturdy and can handle a 2700x overclock. There is also a built in heatsink for the M.2 which you will find is pretty nice.

Don't really care for the clothing tag on it though.
