RAM, doesn't cause RAM to "get ate up".

"Other stuff", causes memory to get "ate up". Memory holes are a software problem. Whether from buggy code in the operating system, or a background process from another application, or an actual application itself, OR an infection, none of these issues are to blame on the memory. When memory is to blame for something it will be the fact that it doesn't work at all, won't run in multiple channel configurations or throws errors and BSODs.

Your RAM getting ate up is something other than the memory, just to be clear on that point.

The best motherboard, bar none, that supports ALL three Ryzen generations and can handle CPUs all the way up to the 3950x, is the B450 Tomahawk and Tomahawk Max. There is no better board you can get for the price. If you want to spend a little more, the B450 Gaming Pro carbon AC or X470 Gaming Pro carbon are very good choices as well, but those are outside the range of the budget you want to stick to so your very best bet would be the Tomahawk Max.
