Every B550,X570 is out of the box compatible. Almost every B450,X470 at this time will come with a compatible bios for 3rd Gen Ryzen but you better ask the store you will buy the motherboard from first. For B450,X470 they should have a "Ryzen 3000 Desktop ready" sticker on the box.

After further Review, i See at MicroCenter they havea deal with ryzen 3700x, wraith prism cooler, and asus b550-E ROG Strix gaming bundle for around $520. does that seem really worth? sorry i dont know prices that much

Uhm I thought i could sneak by with a motherboard for around $200. i dont really want to go over that for the most part. im from the US
I'm using the B450 version of this board and its quite good. BIOS is easy to navigate, set up XMP (ASUS calls it DOCP) and PBO works good.

Now the B450 version of this board is noticeably cheaper however you don't know if it would ship with a updated BIOS without contacting the retailor and also the memory support isn't as good as the B550 which for 3rd gen Ryzen you'll want 3600/CL16 or 3733/CL17.
