    Tommorrow i will recieve my new processor a Ryzen 3900x and i’m looking to pair that with a new motherboard since i’m changing from a intel setup. Seems the new x570 boards are very expensive. I cannot decide between AsRock x470 Taichi and Gigabyte x570 Aorus Pro motherboards, they cost almost the same, the AsRock version is just a little bit more cheap but is also one of the top motherboards from 1 generation behind versus the Gigabyte x570 version that is a mid-range board and really seems 40% more expensive than it’s x470 counterpart. I will pair the motherboard and processor with 2 x 1080 gtx Gigabyte G1 in sli (Got second one for cheap from a friend that upgraded recently) and 32gb ram 3000 cl15 from corsair. I do plan to maybe upgrade gpu’s before i will upgrade my cpu again in the future so in that sense x570 makes a little sense because it offers new pciexpress.

    Any suggestions are highly appreciated.

    P.S: I’m sorry for the “hard to read” post even though i read forums for many years i never actually participate in them for some reason but i decided to write here.
    Thanks in advance.

    Hey @codrutzy, from what I can tell the Taichi costs $210 and the x570 Aorus Pro costs $300
    That’s a bit price difference, and you’re not really getting much for the extra money. It’s possible the 3900X will get an extra few Mhz, but not worth $90 in my opinion, so personally I would stick with the X470 is money is a concern. Anandtech has also reviewed a bunch of X570 motherboards, you might want to check them out if you haven’t already:

    PS: As a side note, I’ve had very good experiences with Gigabyte’s BIOS compared to other brands. They are usually a lot more reliable and stable.



    For some reason the retail price here in Romania is almost the same for both boards, about a 5% price difference between them, so i just went for the Gigabyte x570 one. I think in the future i will be looking into ordering some parts on Amazon De or something similar since there’s quite a big difference in pricing over here it seems, also there’s only 5 x570 boards available here right now. Thanks @coreteks for your opinion.
