I have noticed X470 boards going up in price ASRock X470 Taichi now is $210-$220, Crosshair VII Hero $255 [$275 for the Wi-Fi version], ROG Strix X470-F Gaming $200, MSI X470 GAMING Pro CARBON $180
I think the GIGABYTE X570 AORUS ELITE for $200 is a better alternative than a high end X470 board at this time.
