Coming over from Intel, help with X470/B450
As the title says, pretty much coming over from Intel. Got a decent paying job, no real expenses (IE GF/wife, kids) so can actually upgrade to what I want.
I am looking at grabbing a 3700X, can't justify the others, though would love 'em. I am very much into gaming (FPS, MMO, RTS, etc) and think an 8 core is way to go.
That being said, read a lot about MSI Gaming Pro Carbon and Asrock Taichi as two of the more popular boards. I know ROG Crosshair, but not going to be doing LN2 or really hardcore/serious OCing. Want to effectively use PBO and best RAM I could. Any other boards I should take a serious look at? Hidden pitfalls/gems of the two I mentions?
