Hi, the Ryzen 3 3100 and 3300x recently came out and I'm working on a budget build, and those CPUs are perfect! But to keep it a budget build I will also need a budget motherboard, and a 570x won't fit in budget-wise, and I heard some 450B and 470x support ryzen 3rd gen out of the box but it's a little hard to find out if a certain model does, so can I have some suggestions? I'm looking for something ~$100 or ~$120, might go higher if I need to, but I would also like cheaper suggestions too in case I can't find the right price for other parts.

Here is a link to the pcpartpicker build: https://pcpartpicker.com/user/ThatSourMelon/saved/#view=mqWwzy, looking for a compatible motherboard for these parts, I'm on a tight budget of $653, that sounds like a decent budget, but that includes the monitor and everything besides the mouse and keyboard. I'm trying to cut the cost down, and that's why I'm on the 3000 CPU's and I'm looking for a board to match, and I guess I'm looking for any other suggestions on price-cutting.

I would prefer an ATX board, but I don't think I could find one at this price point so smaller is fine
Built-in WIFI, or if not then with a decent WIFI card
At least 1 SATA 6GP/S port
2 or more DDR4 memory slots
16GB or more max memory
At least 1 PCI x16 (IDK what I need, looking at an Rx 570, maybe upgrade to a better Graphics card in the future)
I'm still not sure about the power supply on the build, so I'm also looking for a PSU suggestion with the motherboard if you can
 
Well then, you have to settle for this...

Thanks! That’s was pretty helpful! But, I did say I have a tight budget of $653, and the thing totals out to ~$715, so I’m still going to have to do some price cuts...

Thx, would the Gigabyte B450M DS3H WIFI be a good board pick? It's about the same price as the other board, and It says it supports 3rd gen ryzen and it has built-in wifi, so we can write off the expense of the adapter.
Edit: pcpartpicker says it would need a BIOS update, but it says it supports 3rd gen on Newegg, so I don't need one... right?

Actually it says that all the parts spiked in prices ~May 11, so I could just wait this out and they would fall back down to ~$550?

Only the MSI MAX boards launched alongside Ryzen 3rd gen and are guaranteed to come with 3rd gen. BIOS with 32mb cache. The rest are all older boards and are dependent on either supply batch or vendor for the updates. Talk to their customer support and ensure its a board from current batch and not some older board from stock clearance. Else you will land in a soup.

Ok, I’ll just stick with the board you suggested and assume it’s the cheapest board I can get with 3rd gen. Thanks for all your help!
