I am currently in the process of putting together a new build and ive been kind of on the fence on what motherboard I should go with. Here is what I plan to build:

5600x
3070/3080
Nzxt kraken x63 360mm aio
16gb ram @ 3200mhz
Evga 850w psu
Lian li lancool ii mesh
1 tb 970 evo plus
2 tb hdd

I've been looking at the Asus x570 tuf gaming plus and it seems like it would have everything I need. I'm not really into overclocking but from what I've read this board can handle overclocking pretty well if I ever wanted to. Would you recommend this board or would it be better to go more expensive like an Asus rog strix i?

Yes, a really good motherboard.
Basically its one of the top 5 pick's for X570 budget-ish motheboards.
Will handle the 5600X without any problems.
Would you recommend spending the extra 30 bucks and get the pro? I saw it had a little better ram speed options and better wifi/lan speeds as well and bios flashback.

Appart from having on-board wifi which is never bad even if you dont use ethernet mainly, i dont see a difference (there is a difference in looks obviously).
The PRO has BIOS flashback, same ram frequency support, same ram capacity, same/similar everything tbh.
Hmm...
I'd get the PRO after all, because u never know when you are going to need BIOS flashback or WiFi.
The only downside of the PRO i see is the lack of rear I/O covers xD, which is not a problem ofcourse.

That would handle well just like many other B550s would. AMD overclocking does not demand crazy motherboards, unfortunately AMD does not have much headroom...
Even my B550 M Steel LEgend (150$) handles easy my 12 core CPU overclocked. This time around the B550 lineup is pretty solid.
