I am looking for a decently cheap motherboard for a Ryzen 3700x. My only requests would be at least 1 PCIE 16x, and DDR4-3200 support for RAM, and 7.1 channel audio.
 
There's probably others, but I know that MSI made new versions of their B450 motherboards (The MAX series) with updated bios to support Ryzen 3000. The 3700X is only a 65W processor, but it is still an eight-core and mine runs at 1.5V at default/auto settings on my X470 Crosshair VII motherboard. If you got one of the cheapest motherboards below, I would suggest tweaking the voltage settings to get it to run at a lower voltage than 1.5V (if that's even necessary).

Motherboard: MSI B450M PRO-M2 MAX Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard ($74.98 @ Amazon)
Motherboard: MSI B450M PRO-VDH MAX Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard ($83.98 @ Newegg)
Motherboard: MSI B450 Gaming Plus MAX ATX AM4 Motherboard ($99.99 @ Amazon)
Motherboard: MSI B450 TOMAHAWK MAX ATX AM4 Motherboard ($114.99 @ Amazon)

Look at the ASUS Prime 570-P, $150... Has a 8+4 Phase VRM so it will run really cool, even with an AMD 3900/3950X if you plan to upgrade down the road... Oddly, the 570-P outperforms the more expensive 570-Prime ($200)

Ive seen a X570 Pro4 for under 120$ last week, not sure if it's still at that price but sounded a good deal considering Hardware Unboxed said it actually did pretty good compared at others.
