I building my new pc and don't know what motherboard to buy
GPU sapphire nitro+ 5700 RX XT
CPU ryzen 7 2700X

I buy previous generations cpu and not ryzen 5 3600 for the same money because in all tests about bottleneck with my GPU is better in
Pc builds com
With ryzen 7 2700X have 0,16 ℅ bottleneck
With ryzen 5 3600 have 6℅ bottleneck

And because ryzen 7 2700X is better for workstation... I built not only for gaming...


Now with this Cpu live out and the 100 euros b450 tomahawk Max which i would use if I choose ryzen 5 3600.

In userbenchmark I see the most popular mobo for ryzen 7 2700X is asus X470 prime pro and I believe is better and for audio crystal sound chip. But this mobo not have Pcle 4 for my GPU. The price here in Greece is 200 euros...
With the same money I can buy tuf X570 from asus...
Or Gigabyte x570 gaming X 159 euros
Or Asus X570 Prime-P 162 euros

The problem for me about X570 motherboards is the air coolers. All have louder fans!!
And not the money. In Greece is cheaper.

So what motherboard i need for my ryzen 7 2700X and my sapphire RX 5700 XT nitro+ ?

In the other way I can go with tomahawk Max
Worst audio only and buy a external audio card?

Thanks in advance for your time

Things have gotten a bit out of order.

You will need a motherboard that supports the desired/required components.

Go to the applicable manufacturer's website for the motherboards under consideration. There should be a listing of supported components ( e.g., CPU, RAM).

And also read the overall spec sheet for the motherboard(s) to ensure that the selected motherboard will have enough slots, ports, connections to meet your requirements.

Read the listings and specification very closely. Pay careful attention to the notes and other fine print.

Motherboard versions and even serial number ranges may make a difference.

The desired component should be specifically listed but it never hurts to get another source of verification.

And do not overlook power requirements and/or go cheap on the PSU. The PSU is a critical component.

In the other way i can go with Ryzen 7 3700X and B450 Tomahawk Max with 400 euros

Or better mobo and Ryzen 7 2700X

Pc builds com GPU sapphire nitro+ 5700 RX XT
With ryzen 7 2700X have 0,16 ℅ bottleneck

With ryzen 7 3700X have 26℅ bottleneck!!!!!!

That's the reason who i insist in ryzen 7 2700X and not money...

So

1)Ryzen 7 2700X gen+ with Asus Prime X470 Pro or Aorus X570 Gaming X or Asus X570 Prime-P or MSI MPG X570 Gaming Plus or Asus TUF Gaming X570-Plus
or
2)Ryzen 7 3700X gen2 with B450 Tomahawk max

About PSU iam sure for my choice
Corsair RMx Series RM750x
Corsair TX-M Series TX750M

One of this 2

Don't bother with bottleneck calculators, they are garbage and don't account for resolution or game.

As for the motherboard look at the ASRock B450M A/C, it will support the 2700X/3700X out of the box, has wifi/bt, easy to navigate BIOS and can usually be found for a good price.

I read ASRock B450M A/C is very good motherboard with good vrm

Ryzen 7 2700X is hungry power and i am worried about temperatures...


I need a good Motherboard with Pcle 4 for my GPU
and good audio
Pcle 4 not have all X470 motherboards
So? I must go with X570?

Asus Prime X470 Pro

Asus TUF Gaming X570-Plus
Asus Rog Crosshair VII Hero is very expensive 260 euro
Asus Prime X570-P nice price but i listen something wrong about bios

can i go with msi 450 Tomahawk max?

Is tomahawk good for hungry power Ryzen 7 2700X?

I want good vrm temperatures, good audio and Pcle 4 for gpu
If i go with X470 without Pcle 4... but is also nice cause this mobos don't have air louder fans many times under GPU....as X570

With ryzen 7 3700X have 28.8℅ bottleneck!!!!!!


That's the reason who i insist in ryzen 7 2700X...

So

1) Ryzen 7 2700X gen+ & Asus Rog Strix X570-F Gaming ?
or
2 )Ryzen 7 3700X gen2 & MSI MPG X570 Gaming Plus ?

The reason for choose 7 2700X is bottleneck
Your graphic card is too weak for this processor.
Can i go with 7 3700X without problem?
 
Stop using websites that calculate bottleneck... they're just lame.

I'll never consider the GPU as a bottleneck when paired with a more capable CPU... the card will run at 100%, thus not being hampered by the CPU in any way. The GPU will be used at it's max potential... isn't that what evryone wants?

Considering the RX 5700 XT as a bottle neck for the 3700X is very far fetched. It will be a good pairing. I'd also get the 3700X over the 2700X... IPC improvements of Zen 2 over Zen+ are significant.

Honorable
Having had the X570 Steel Legend I can only speak for that, the motherboard looks incredible, good implementation of design like most people said and it does overclock quite nicely with the VRM temps in a very reasonable range, you will most likely be limited by the CPU than by this motherboard, unless you go extreme overclock.
