So, I ordered this Asus ROG Strix B450 F Gaming mb and I'd like to have the Ryzen 7 3700x or the Ryzen 5 3600x cpu, but I recon I need to upgrade my bios before I can install one of these.

My question is: what is the cheapest cpu supported by this board, just so I can upgrade my bios?

Alternative/more affordable cpu recommendations is also appreciated 👍

If the AMD program doesn't work or if you want a spare CPU, this is the cheapest that works with your motherboard:
Athlon 200GE about 50$.
