To start our segment on motherboards off we are going to talk about an AMD motherboard, and just like before we started off with the budget build models and work our way up to elite as the week goes on. MSI Performance GAMING AMD X470 Ryzen 2 AM4 DDR4 Onboard Graphics CFX ATX Motherboard (X470 GAMING PLUS). This particular card we selected because of the bang for the buck, dedicated LAN support, DDR4, award wining BIOS and more. It will run the Ryzen 5 and is able to be overclocked.
This is a community recommended board that we have looked into and found to be a very versatile board and well worth the investment. The Gigabyte X570 AORUS Elite AMD Ryzen 3000/X570. Supports DDR4 technology, ability to run 2nd and 3rd gen Ryzen processors, not to mention Dual ultra-fast NVMe PCIe 4.0/3.0 x4 M.2 & thermal guard.
