Hi all, i bought the Ryzen 3900x couple days ago and was looking for my options on a reliable motherboard without spending $$$. I was given the suggestion about Asus TUF x570 Plus (Wi-Fi) motherboard and it looks good but i was looking at its specification here:
https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/TUF-GAMING-X570-PLUS-WI-FI/specifications/

Thing is, only 1 PCIE 4.0 x16 Slot listed here. I have 1080 Ti and a 4-Port SATA PCIE add-in card which requires PCIE x8 slot and not the PCIE x1.
Question is will i be able to use both in this board without a problem or do i need to look into another board now which has 2 slots? On the gallery screen it does look like it has more then 1 PCIe slot that is not x1.

If its not possible to use both on this motherboard then i need a suggestion for a new mobo which is not too expensive and has WIFI+8 SATA slots. $250 USD max, possibly cheaper.

The TUF doesn't have the 2nd x8 slot. You'll have to look at the specs and decide whats in your budget.

This board does for example;

I am upgrading from 8700k because my gigabyte mobo is faulty. I am not going to buy another gigabyte. I had nothing but bad luck with them. Overheating gpus, faulty mobo's etc but thanks for the suggestion. I will stick with either Asus or MSI
