I am building my first ever PC with a 5600x (just ordered it) and 3060ti (if I can ever get one) and have no idea what Motherboard to get. I'm looking to spend around $200.
Is there a site that lists what Motherboards are compatible with Zen 3 CPUs? Or lists which MoBos have USB Bios Flashback? I've tried googling this a ton with no results.
Any insight is immensely appreciated!

New batches of B550 boards are compatible with Zen 3 without a BIOS update. The listing will specify if the board needs a BIOS update or if it can support Zen 3 out of the box.
I would recommend the MSI MAG 550 Tomahawk or ASUS Prime X570 P as I've seen people running the 2 without issues.

Edit: The box or listing would said 'Ryzen 5000 series ready"
