Hi guys, I was looking for a motherboard, which one should I choose: ASRock X370M, ASRock, H370M, ASRock B450M HDV, or Gigabyte B450M DS3H? I can get the ASROCK X370M or H370M for 10 bucks more, is it worth it? Thank you for your help and have a good day.
 
Pay attention to AMD vs Intel boards. There are no H-series AMD boards.

AMD Boards - X370, B350, A320, X470, B450
Intel Boards - Z370, H370, B350. H310, Z390, B365

What CPU are you looking to buy?
What country are you shopping in?

By the way, I eliminated the h370 both from the title and the post
 
The Gigabyte B450M-DS3H is certainly better than the AsRock B450M-HDV because it has 4 RAM slots.

I presume you're referring to the AsRock X370M-Pro4. I'd steer clear of the 300-series boards since they won't support Ryzen 4000 CPUs. Even 400 series boards originally weren't going to, but AMD changed their tune after catching flack for it. Likely, because of the small BIOS space, a Ryzen 4000 series BIOS will drop support for 1000 and 2000 series CPUs.

The MSI B450M Pro-VDH MAX would be a strong contender in my opinion since it has a 32MB BIOS (will allow it to support more CPUs concurrently on a BIOS version). Not sure how that's priced compared to the Gigabyte B450M-DS3H though.
