I wouldn't get any of the Gigabyte b450 boards, they have pretty weak VRMs. For b450 MSI is pretty much ruling the roost. No access to MSI?

I would avoid the 300 series boards now if possible. You'll lose access to XFR2, I know you're getting the non-x chip, and there's a possibility that motherboard manufacturers may not upgrade the UEFIs to support 3000 series chips on older boards
