Hi, I am struggling to find a good MOB for my build. I have found a few i wanted but then i either lose out because they are out of stock or wont ship until like January or something. Note: I have ordered the following components for my build. Note: This build was put together with the help of a very kind person on this platform...not sure i can say their name otherwise i would. Anyway, thanks to them for their help.

Requirements/would likes:
I need a board that supports at least 2 M.2 type storage (see build below)
I would like (but is not a deal breaker...not sure if will need) a board that can output to 2 monitors
I prefer a board that does not cost more than $200..i was hoping for around $150 but i think that is not going to happen.....so i budget around $200.
i would like the board to be able to ship sooner rather than later so i can put it together before the holidays...i know i should have done this earlier but i did not know i was going to do this until just a wk or so ago.

I have been looking and i did find these two boards but i am not sure if they will work with my build components i have thus far. Especially the M.2 storage devices i selected (see below build). I am not sure if there are just as good a board but cheaper somewhere else.....also do not know if these will support my RAM......you get the idea i just dont know.

Question: Is it better to have onboard (ie...on MOB) wifi or to buy something that plugs into MOB on the back for a wifi?

Also, i am suprised no one has offered any suggestions........have i done something wrong or violated some unspoken rule? I tried to make sure i put this into the right "section" which is under Mother boards.

I added my pick, to your list. I have the non AX version. I would have preferred the AX version, but Microcente had an open box deal that was too good to pass up, and I got it, and a PCI-E adapter, for less.

No matter what board you use, you will never get full speed, out of those drives, because the 5600g only support PCI-E gen 3. Those drives will still work, but not at their max potential. I am running ddr4 3733 in my board, so 3600 should be fine.
