Hi. I want to upgrade my current pc (i5 3350p with 16gb ddr3) to a ryzen system. I will use the PC mostly for gaming and some rendering. I will continue to use the gpu that I own (1660ti strix), the cooler (Mugen 5 ARgb), the psu (corsair rm650x) and the case (coolermaster storm trooper) + a samsung 860 evo 500gb ssd. I will buy an R5 3600 (or the x version if there is a sale) with 32gb 3200 hyperx ram (HX432C16PB3K2/32). When it comes to the motherboard, I was thinking of buying the Msi x470 gaming pro max. However, I have seen that some x570 boards cost about the same. Do you think it is worth getting an Asus x570 tuf gaming plus or a Msi x570 gaming wifi, over that x470 from msi? Im most interested to buy the board that it is the most stable! Thanks in advance!

I agree! the 570s are great for 3rd gen Ryzens. That x570 also comes with wifi connectivity, which the 470 does not. If the prices are similar, definitely go for the 570

You might want to think about some faster ram, 3600 MHz is the sweet spot.

There's also been some negative talk about the VRMs in the cheaper MSI x570s, you might want to look into that, e.g.:

Well I have the Ryzen 5 2600x with a B450 carbon pro and love it. However, since the new consoles coming out will all use 8 core processing, you might want 8 cores instead of 6 and get a Ryzen 7 series...

If you're looking for stable board go for X470, the cut price is quite good
If you have to choose X570 go for Asus X570 Prime (better vrm cooling), more stable in OC
