[SOLVED] Choosing a Mobo for My Setup

Hi folks,

First of all, I want to thank all of you in advance.

I have bought a Asus ROG Strix 2070 8G Gaming (not advanced or oc , plain gaming version) with a good discount. I am planning to buy Ryzen 5 3600 or 3600X. However, I could not decide on the mobo. I though that MSI B450 Tomahawk Max may be a good idea. But Since my GPU is Asus ROG Strix, I started to think that maybe one of the Asus Rog Strix MOBO would be better.

Do you guys have any suggestions?
Regards

ryzen 5 3600x is a waste of money compared to ryzen 5 3600,it has bassically no performance difference compared to the non-x 3600.With no doubt MSI B450 TOMAHAWK MAX is a very good option for ryzen 5 3600,but it doesnt have some features B550 has,such as PCIe Gen 4.0 and better future proofing.Asus ROG makes good B550 ones and since you want ROG board heres some good ones:
-Asus ROG STRIX B550-F GAMING (190$)
-Asus ROG STRIX B550-F GAMING (WI-FI) (200$)
-Asus ROG STRIX B550-E GAMING (220$)
