It depends on how much you want to oc the 3700x, because the Asus TUF B450-PLUS GAMING has only 4+2 power phase https://www.anandtech.com/show/13091/analyzing-b450-for-amd-ryzen-a-quick-look-at-all-the-motherboards/8 , and the Gigabyte Aorus Pro b450 4+3 power phase ( not the 8+3 ) https://www.kitguru.net/components/motherboard/ryan-martin/gigabyte-b450-aorus-pro-motherboard-review/3/ .

And more power phase is better for the ocing cpu. Also you will need to get the free boot kit from AMD so that the 4 series MB can support the 3rd gen cpu.
