Hello!
I'm upgrading my PC and I'm having some issues choosing motherboard and cpu.

1. I'm considering to buy either Ryzen 1500x or Ryzen 1600x. Which one is better for gaming? Are there any games that can make use of 6 cores and 12 threads?

2. I'm also looking for good and cheap (100 euro) am4 motherboard. I'd like to have four memory slots, Ryzen 3600x/Ryzen 3900x support and some overclocking abilities (I don't expect wonders here).

I was thinking about one of these:
ASRock AB350 Pro4
ASRock X370 Pro4
Gigabyte B450M DS3H
Gigabyte B450 AORUS ELITE
Gigabyte AX370 Gaming 3
MSI B350M PRO-VD PLUS

What would you buy? My favourite is Gigabyte B450 AORUS ELITE.

Thanks in advance and have a great day!

what should be the price for the mobo and cpu???
MOBO - 100€. Both CPUs got similar price in my country during sales.

My pick would be a gigabyte x470 aorus ultra with a solid vrm.
It's too expensive in my country.

Well in my opinion x470 is not necessary therefore he is only gonna have 1GPU so SLI and CROSSFIRE. And the only difference between x470 and b450 is the SLI and crossfire support so go with b450. B450 Tomahawk is pretty good for the money https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07FWY246F/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=tech01ee-20&camp=1789&creative=9325&linkCode=as2&creativeASIN=B07FWY246F&linkId=5cac35004b8131dbf5ad78bdc52fc548 this one is ATX and little more expensive . And this one is mATX I would personally buy this one with the CPU you are taking (1600x ) - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07MV9BMNY/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B07MV9BMNY&linkCode=as2&tag=tech01ee-20&linkId=a78dc88fe0c0ca0c6754560929332a75 .
Wouldn't it be better to buy Gigabyte B450 AORUS ELITE than mATX ver.?
