Hey all, I'm looking into building a new PC and have little knowledge in doing so but have been doing a bunch of research on it. So I'm thinking my build will include a Nvidia Rtx 3060ti maybe up to a 3080 of some sort which I know changes things a bit. I'm looking at the Amd Ryzen 9 5950x cpu. I'm looking for recommendations for a good motherboard to pair with these two. I would like to have one with wifi and Bluetooth capability. Or if there is a cheaper or better way to include Bluetooth in the build I'm open to other options. If anyone has better recommendations for other components too I'm open to all suggestions. Thanks!

I'm in the US, budget is $1500 give or take, no parts to reuse and working with a 144hz, 1080 monitor for not not planning a monitor upgrade in this budget but will upgrade it in the future.

I did use a cheaper case which i think is still fine for these parts (added two fans to put in the back which makes it more xpensive again though,maybe one is enough) , the big cooler is really necessary for the 5800X3D, the 5700X could do with a smaller one.

Did look at this motherboard,
https://pcpartpicker.com/product/QVn8TW/asrock-x570-steel-legend-wifi-ax-atx-am4-motherboard-x570-steel-legend-wifi-ax
it does come with WIFI but cannot say for sure it comes with the latest bios, the one in the builds above supports USB Bios Flashback which makes it easy to update the bios in case of incompatibility.

Oh if Nvidia is your thing, this is also possible,

Since pcpartpicker isn't showing what AM5 does some suggestions from one Newegg, but Amazon and other shops (maybe a Micro Center nearby?) should also sell these,
cpu's,
https://www.newegg.com/amd-ryzen-5-7600x-ryzen-5-7000-series/p/N82E16819113770?Description=am5&cm_re=am5-_-19-113-770-_-Product
or
https://www.newegg.com/amd-ryzen-7-7700x-ryzen-7-7000-series/p/N82E16819113768?Description=am5&cm_re=am5-_-19-113-768-_-Product&quicklink=true
motherboard,

or,
https://www.newegg.com/msi-pro-b650-p-wifi/p/N82E16813144560?Item=N82E16813144560&Description=am5&cm_re=am5-_-13-144-560-_-Product
ram,
https://www.newegg.com/team-32gb/p/N82E16820331839
especially motherboard is more expensive, but it does have wifi so the added $40 wifi card on the builds can be taken out.
