I'm making a list of all the parts i want for my upcoming first build , link here if interested https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/user/Mytic/saved/bPPp8d
And i was wondering what is the difference between both of these motherboards as one is r.4.0 and one is not. I have no idea what it means or what to get for my system.
R4.0 Model - https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/product/RD97YJ/asrock-b450m-hdv-r40-micro-atx-am4-motherboard-b450m-hdv-r40

Normal - https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/product/LLYLrH/asrock-b450m-hdv-micro-atx-am4-motherboard-b450m-hdv

What would be a better choice and what is the actual difference between the boards?

EDIT:
Also would it be worth me spending a bit more on a motherboard if so what should i get and what difference would it make?
 
R4 is the revision of the motherboard. Best guess is it’s ready for Ryzen 3000 series. You’d have to call customer service to see. Your PSU choice is bad, quality gold Corsair is better. Intel very good nvme drive. Lowered your cas latency on RAM. Ryzen 3600 is better for gaming than 2700x. Motherboard is fine and an upgrade there probably wouldn’t benefit you.
