So, I've decided to get the r5 3600. However, I'm still stuck on what exact motherboard I should choose, and whether or not I should say get a 550 board instead of a 450 one. I don't plan on overclocking the cpu yet but I might down the line. Anyways, there are certain bundles that are selling right now and I would like to get an opinion of which one I should choose from. I will be listing the price for the total cpu+mobo combo however I will only be writing the mobo since in all these bundles the cpu is the r5 3600. Last thing to mention is that I will be converting the local currency into USD, and that while a 30 dollar difference may not seem like much, over here could mean the difference between something like a 1080p monitor to a 1440p one. Here are the mobos and prices:

B450m mortar max + cpu = 250 usd
Tuf gaming B450M pro S + cpu = 263 usd
Tuf B450m pro gaming + cpu = 247 usd
B450m Aorus Elite + cpu = 242 usd
B550m Bazooka + cpu = 270 usd

Suggestions would be much appreciated! Btw, I plan on using this mobo and cpu with a rtx 2070 super, 16gbs of 3200mhz ram, 1 nvme 500gb ssd and 1 sata 500gb ssd. Still honing in on the right psu, but probably gonna snag a 80+ 650w one. Oh, and i'm gonna be throwing it all into a thermaltake v21 matx case.

Ok, thanks man! I know that the new gpus are coming out but likely stock won't be available where I am when I want it so I'll probably use the new gpus to get a discount on the older ones. Thanks again!
