You guys have any input on the MSI MEG Z390 ACE or MPG Z390 Gaming Pro carbon AC? The meg board is pushing the budget at 290 but was curious since I've seen references to its much more expensive Godlike sibling being a good board apparently. I was kinda looking at the Asus and now MSI boards just a bit because some of the new cases I'm looking at have integrated lighting that work with Asus and MSI but not Gigabyte since Gigabyte is using a 3 pin vs 4 pin header and can't do ARGB lights. It's just stuff I'm considering, but the overall board performance is definitely higher on the priority list.
