I've had the MSI B450 Tomohawk for two years now and have had nothing but problems. I'm ready to upgrade to a better motherboard that will work with my current hardware. Please reply with your suggestions.

I recommend Gigabyte B550 boards. Ironically, the wifi version is a few dollars cheaper, than the non wifi, right now. 550w is a bit on the low side, for a 5700xt, I would bump up to at least 650w, and equal or better quality to what you have now.
