    Well i have very little options at this point
    I might have to go ahead and go to a Premium Board anyway it's all good
    I mean i did pay over $1100 for a Gsync Monitor not like that's any different
    I paid a grand for my 24 inch NEC (PA242W) pro grade monitor back in 2014. But that was in investment in my photography. BTW I'm still using said monitor.

    Anyway I did NOT mean to infer you needed to spend that much on a board. Get what suits you and your wallet, not mine. And trust me, prior to my $500 board I stayed around 300 for a good board. This system I kind of went overboard so...

    Call me ridiculous since my board (Gigabyte Z390 Xtreme) was over $500. No regrets though

    But agree not everyone needs a $500 board.

    That's true. And everyone doesn't need a 16 core/ 32 thread CPU either.
    Nor an i9-9900K; but as PC enthusiasts that's what we do... build overkill systems

    Well i filled out a couple auto notifications so far i am leaning towards this
    ASRock X570 TAICHI AM4 ATX AMD Motherboard - Newegg.com

    ASUS AM4 TUF Gaming X570-Plus (Wi-Fi) ATX Motherboard with PCIe 4.0, Dual M.2, 12+2 with Dr. MOS Power Stage, HDMI, DP, SATA 6Gb/s, USB 3.2 Gen 2 and Aura Sync RGB Lighting - Newegg.com

    I don't really need RGB (Both Boards use it ) because everything else has it already so what do you think this is between cheap and high mid range

    of course the Taichi is the one i would really get but this is also for the sake of reliability as well

    I haven't used a Tuff board in a minute

    I can't speak on Asus or Asrock boards as I don't nor have I never have used them. Since moving off an Intel board back in my Q6600 days I only use Gigabyte (my last 5 builds all used Gigabyte boards).

    Anyway I don't know what chip you're looking at but if you plan on overclocking, you might visit an overclocking community such as overclocker.net to see what boards they're playing with and what they have to say. The downside of a cheap (as in quality) board comes in instability of power and quality electrical components.

    Again, you don't need a $500 dollar board, but a $100 dollar board may not get you what you want.

    My two cents.

    Well i'm a Asrock guy and i use a lot of Gigabyte GPU's but the Boards gave me trouble a few years back
    Too me the Asrock is my choice anyway and like you said I haven't used Asus in ages so i would not even know where to begin
    but having Asrock for like the last 4 Builds dating back to Skylake i think i should keep sticking with them
    The CPU i'm looking at is the 3950x right under Threadripper status

    Well i went ahead and got this combination after research this has the best VRMS vs any other
    it's comparable to the $300+ Tier Boards and also was mention no bran loyalty because this time around their not so good

    Spent about $970.00 total because i bought from two places apparently Newegg is Tripping because it kept declining my Card with money there so i just used my paypal and the same declined card on Amazon for the CPU like seriously made me work for this sh........
