Hey guys and gals! Ive been looking at two different boards a bunch and cant decide which is the better buy? Im looking at the ASUS ROG Strix X470-F Gaming and an MSI X470 Gaming Plus. Is the Asus "actually" worth the extra $50? Or should I save the money and roll with the MSI board? And go! Thanks!

Im going with the Ryzen 5 2600. The Asus board has Intel Ethernet controller and SupremeFX S1220 audio vs Realtek. Is audio quality on the Asus board going to be $50 better than MSI? Other than that I dont see too much of a differerence between the two boards. Maybe Asus has a bit better heatsinks on vrm? Overclocking will not be a huge priority. Tho I do want the ability to do modest OC at some point. Im an ASRock guy, so Ive not had experience with MSI or Asus MB's but Asrock is getting pricey and cheap with their components so I am looking elsewhere.
