Have a Ryzen 3600x build that needs a new motherboard since I originally bought a Tomahawk Max which had boot issues (as well as it's replacement). Between these two ASUS boards which would be the better value given my situation? Additionally the Asus TUF would be a straight replacement, vs the ROG STRIX which would be $20 more.

Is the ROG STRIX worth another $20, it's not a ton more but if it's worth it in the long run and is more reliable then I'll go for it. I don't plan on overclocking at all, I don't require PCIe 4.0, and I'm not interested in the jump up to the x570 boards. Also the store I bought it from will do all the hardware installation for me, as well as updating the bios for either one. The most important factor is reliability.

Full specs:
AMD Ryzen 5 3600X 3.8 GHz 6-Core Processor
G.Skill Ripjaws V 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3600 Memory
Samsung 970 Evo Plus 500 GB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive
MSI GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER 8 GB VENTUS OC Video Card
Corsair 650W 80+ Bronze Power Supply
