Been checking out on some good b450 mobos for my future build;
https://pcpartpicker.com/list/dGdXyk

Ive checked the web and it seems that gigabyte ds3h and msi pro-m2 has got some bad reviews.
And regarding the board in my build, the asrock pro4 mATX, I hardly find any store/ online selling site that sells this type in my country.
And i also plan to do 1 ssd 1 hdd and may later add gpu , maybe rx 570 or 580 (not sure if this info is necessary)

Can u recommend any budget but better board ? Can add some additional bucks if needed
And also i found a shop near my place that sells this board, is this a good one ?

I also read some good reviews about the msi tomahawk and bazooka, and also gigabyte aorus. Any thoughts?

Thanks <3

"...that sells this type in my country."
Now, where is that?

We will also need to know what your budget is and what your preferred site for purchase is.
Im from Philippines and the common online selling sites here are shopee.ph and lazada.com.ph. I've also tried checking https://verzaton.com.ph/product-category/chassis/ and https://pcx.com.ph/product-category/components/casing/ .
I might wanna consider overseas sites like amazon and newegg.

Im trying to make a budget gaming pc build so around $300- $350/400 for the whole build.

Alright!

From this site:
https://verzaton.com.ph/?orderby=price&paged=1&s=B450&product_cat=0&post_type=product
I'd ask you to pick the B450M Steel Legend by ASRock. I've worked with it and it's well featured, without cutting corners.

Also, if you have access to MSI's B450M Mortar Max, that'd be a good board as well but please keep in mind that you will need both M.2 drives to be PCIe based. On the Steel Legend board you can have one SATA based SSD and not use up the CPU. The slot is wired to the chipset as opposed to the MSI's board having both M.2 slots wired for PCIe based SSD's so if you do have 1xSATA M.2 drive and 1xPCIe M.2, the first slot among the two will only accept the SATA M.2 drive while the secondary M.2 slot on board will be running at PCIe 2.0 x4 meaning reduced speeds.

Ok thanks for the suggestion. Will surely keep in mind of this additional info.
 
I'd recommend avoiding the B450m TUF Plus. The Steel Legend would be a good choice for a 2400g processor, although getting the Mortar MAX (for mATX size) or Tomahawk MAX (if you want full-size ATX) would be great and provide an excellent foundation for later upgrades to Ryzen 3000 CPU's.

You might want to take a look at this, you can FF to 20 min's or 24 min's for good/cheap B450 recommends.
