Question Which is better between MSI B550 Gaming Edge & Gaming Plus ? need explanation.

Dec 30, 2020
I am looking for a decent mobo for Ryzen 5 3600. I have watched Hardware Unboxed video and decided to go for MSI B550 boards but here in India Gaming edge cost me 230USD & Gaming plus cost me 198USD. Some threads are clearly not recommending gaming plus so i want to know whats the disadvantages in gaming plus.
I also checked Gigabyte B550 Aorus pro price around 223.99USD.
Need help please pick better one and budget friendly for me. Thank you.


Win 10 Master
Gaming Edge can run faster ram, max of 5500
Gaming Edge only has 6 USB 2 ports
Gaming Edge has 2 RGB LED connectors

Gaming Plus max ram is 4400
Gaming Plus has 8 USB 2 slots
Gaming Plus has 1 RGB LED Connector

I would grab the Gaming Edge as its better than the Plus. depends if you want the faster ram speeds really. The differences between them aren't very big otherwise.

obviously more differences between Aorus and the MSI boards as the 2 MSI boards are virtually the same, only 3 differences. So I show you how the aorus competes in those areas.
Aorus can run ram at 5100
6 USB ports on back of case
2 RGB LED connectors
