Best Motherboard under £150 UK for 3700x

Hi All,
I'm totally in a muddle around what motherboard to buy for a 3700x under the £150, do I buy a B450 with flashback or a cheap x570? Also do I really need to get 3600mhz ram for the 3700x or will some 3200mhz do?

I'm limited to Amazon.co.uk as I've got a load of vouchers to use.

Help appreciated

A bit more than your budget . . .

For RAM, this will work . . .

This will work great, it's the board I am using now.

as for ram, 3200 will work fine, and then overclock the crap out of it using ryzen dram master to get the settings
