If you want a good board without spending a lot of money then I'd recommend the MSI B450 Tomahawk max. If you want an X570 board, then I'd recommend the options given here at each price point.



If you're going to run a 2nd Gen Ryzen CPU then I'd stick to memory that is either 2933mhz or 3200mhz. 3600mhz memory can work with 2nd Gen Ryzen but you will likely end up reducing the speed manually to get them to work. That's fine if you plan to upgrade to a newer CPU later that supports faster memory but if it will be three or four years before that happens then by then we will probably be on to DDR5 anyhow and it would be pointless.
