    DARK HERO , you can OC , and not lose single thread performance, it will max out both at the same time , only two boards that do that, the other is ASUS 700$ Formula .

    There are some rich people posting here! I'm looking to build a new PC. I don't see much point spending more than 250 on a mobo and Ryzen CPU prices are sky high. I decided to wait a while and see if they reduce.

    Well, generally speaking being enthusiasts, many of us do tend to overbuy...or at least buy more than is necessary. I tend to not buy very often, and keep my machines for a long time. I also replace the entire box, rather than piecemeal upgrade it.

    With respect to motherboards, they are the core of the system, so I see the value in having a quality board. On the flip side, with high end boards, you are often paying for things that might not really be terribly beneficial for you. That is the difference between the high end and lower end boards. Both are going to work fine though in a system, so don't feel that if you aren't able to afford the high end board you are making a significant compromise. For example, I just built a system and got a much nicer board that I ever buy for myself. It's a Rog Strix X570-E Gaming, and it was about $300. I've never spent over $175 on a mobo. The things I got with the higher end board include 1). 7 USB 3 Gen 2 ports, 10Gbps (don't need that much speed for nearly any of my devices 2). Wi-FI 6 adapter. (I don't have a wifi-6 router, i only have 500Mbps to the internet and my PC is hardwired...so not even using wireless. 3). 2.5Gbps ethernet adapter (I'm only running 1Gbps switches at present, so not using that port....and considering adding 10Gbps Fiber to a home SAN to store games...so may not use the 2.5Gps ever). 4). Better power delivery for more advanced overclocks. (I don't do much in the way of overclocking and am totally satisfied with stock performance on my Ryzen 9 5900x). So, honestly, I could have probably saved $100 and went with the Asus Tuf Gaming X570 that my son has.

    As far as the Ryzen CPU's go, they are so hard to find and that is driving up the prices. Enthusiasts or course want the fastest CPU and the most cores possible. The 5900x and 5950x are great...but most people honestly probably won't get that much more from these chips than they would have a 5600x which is $299.....which is pretty affordable for such a powerful CPU. I like to run labs of virtual machines for my job, for learning and experimenting, and hence the reason I went with the 5900x. It's probably overkill for me, but my previous desktop build is 10 years old...so I keep them for awhile.

    Set a budget, buy what you can afford and don't worry about what other people have. That's my mantra.

    with a very nice board (at least for me...it's the most I have ever spent on a mobo). It's a Rog Strix X570-E Gaming.
