Hello, I am looking to build my first PC, but I don't know a lot about motherboard could someone suggest a good motherboard for this PC? I still haven't bought anything and I know that the RTX30 are sold out everywhere.

Just an extra question how would I update the bios of the motherboard? My other desktop is very old and it has an intel Pentium g4560, so I assume the motherboard in that one can't be replaced in order to update the bios
 
Would it be possible to replace it with the Asus's b550 boards. Such as the ASUS ROG STRIX B550-E GAMING AM4 or the ASUS ROG STRIX B550-F GAMING AM4? Because the place I am ordering from has a pay later system and only has those 2 available and no gigabyte motherboards. The website is https://www.currys.co.uk/
To be honest with you,i dont know if those motherboards have a similar feature to gigabyte one's i recommended.
Do a bit of research and see if you find anything on that bios update without a cpu,ram,etc..
 
On a side note,may i suggest these changes:

Changed the cooler to something that perfroms better,and has rgb so you can mess around with that.
Changed the storage to just 1 single fast m.2 drive,personally for me its easier to use just one storage device.
Changed the 4000D for 4000D airflow.I think the reason is pretty self explanator.
The CV 650W isnt bad,but its meh,it can run this config,but i would rather go safe with a seasonic gx unit.The 550W is £87 but 650W is £15 more,so see if you can get the 650W version,but 550W will do.
And you dont need to spend 100$ on a windows license there are much cheaper ways u can get licensed windows.

Buy some of the gigabyte's b550 boards.
They have Q Flash Plus which lets you update the bios without having a cpu and ram in the motherboard.
There are videos on youtube about that.
For the motherboard any of these honestly:

the first one i dont think has it,since its not in the AORUS lineup,but any of the other motherboard will do.
Would it be possible to replace it with the Asus's b550 boards. Such as the ASUS ROG STRIX B550-E GAMING AM4 or the ASUS ROG STRIX B550-F GAMING AM4?

Ok, thank you. I will look for motherboards with similar features and for the cheaper windows license. I prefer your build, but I will try to buy the most stuff possible from Currys, so I have to go for pieces like ryzen 7 5800x.
