Question Can you get a Ryzen motherboard with PCI slot in 2020?

The Tiger

Aug 30, 2013
I'm upgrading my 2013 Intel i5 PC to a Ryzen 7 2700 (that's the most number of cores I could get in my budget. ). So I'm thinking of getting a suitable motherboard (like the B450 chipset ones, which are not too expensive, neither too underpowered.) The problem is I can't find a single motherboard that features a PCI slot. I have an ASUS Xonar DX, which has great sound quality, and I don't want to settle for weak onboard audio now. Could you please suggest one model that has PCI slot?

Also is MSI or Gigabyte better in terms of durability? I want this one to last 7 years too. Will not overclock.
