Hello 👋, i am thinking what motherboard to get for my new ryzen 3k build. I wonder between x570 and x470, but my main concern is that for mid range x570 i can get top end x470 in my country. I don't understand the benefits of having pcie 4, except the transfer speeds. When new GPUs utilising pcie 4 are coming out, i can't find any information for that. Also i red pcie 5 is almost done and i am confused should i pay more for x570 or just get older stable board version whit good vrm for possible overclock. P. S. I plan to only game on that pc and my cpu of choice will be from 3600 up to 3700x. Thanks in advance.

Personally, I'd opt for a high-end X470 board (like a Taichi etc) over X570, assuming you can get the BIOS updated to support 3000 series.
Some higher end boards will allow you to flash the BIOS without a compatible CPU, others will require a 1000 or 2000 series chip in order to update the BIOS.

Current single GPU offerings don't exhaust the bandwidth available for 3.0, let alone 4.0 The new 5700 and 5700XT from AMD are 4.0 compatible/compliant, but they're not going to utilize all the bandwidth available.

PCIe SSDs are coming out utilizing 4.0, and they can theoretically exceed 3.0 throughput... but to 99.99% of users, you'd never notice a difference in day to day usage.

Thank you very much for the information.
