Need z490 mobo under $250

Hey need a mobo to pair with a i5 10600k. Would like to stay under 250 (200 ish would be better) I see on Newegg The Msi Tomahawk, Gaming plus and Gaming Edge wifi. Anyone have any of these boards they would like to suggest?

Not going to do any real overclocking for now. Need something stable sort of set it and forget it. This is a pc for a family member doing some light gaming. Thanks for any help. I have only used Asus boards so not really familiar with MSI board and their bios.

The MSI Tomahawk
or the
ASUS TUF GAMING Z490-PLUS

I like MSI boards at the mid to low end but this time around i went for the ASUS Tuf Z490. good board if you do not want to spend a lot money and takes my 10700k to 5100 on all cores with out issues

Z490 Asus' motherboards are NOT compliant with PCIE 4.0 specs. All other brands are.

Tomahawk is the best "budget" Z490 motherboard.
