I'm planning on upgrading my motherboard and cpu and thought the R7 3700x looked good however all the motherboards I've looked at are way out of my budget I just wanted to know if the Asus Strix B450-F would work well with it?

B450-F would require a BIOS update, as would MOST B450 boards except for the MSI "max" models, and that board does not have BIOS flashback which means you would need a 2nd Gen Ryzen CPU in order TO update the BIOS with. There are about five or six MSI B450 boards with BIOS flashback, so they can be updated without a CPU installed, and then a handful of MSI boards from the "max" series that are already Ryzen 3000 compatible.

If you already have a first or second gen Ryzen 3, 5 or 7, or even a lower tiered model, then you can use it to flash a B450 or X470 board to a BIOS version that will support Ryzen 3000 processors.

Otherwise, you would need an X570 board.
