Actually, both boards are fine. They have basically the same VRM design and run relatively cool running a 3900x. The 3700x will pose no problems at all and should handle the RTX2080 Super with no issues. But you are spending a large percentage on the GPU, you might want to consider a better board, like the ASUS X570 ROG Crosshair VIII Hero ($360).

The VRM design is a lot better especially if you want to get a 105-watt CPU down the road. With Zen 3 on the horizon, it is likely this will be the last AM4 generation. It is likely that the Zen 3 will need a new motherboard design as AMD promised that the AM4 platform will only be good until 2020.

I was highly considering the ASUS Prime x570-P. Any reasons for the TUF over the Prime?
