Motherboard for Ryzen 5

I’m upgrading my first homebuilt system. I put this thing together 7-8 years ago and it has served me well until the last 12-18 months. I recently retired with lots more free time I’ve started the research to upgrade my system.

I admit to not being a huge gamer, but - I play and (it goes without saying) the grandkids love it. I want a solid CPU so I decided to upgrade to an ADM Ryzen 2600/2600X and am trying to decide between the following 3 motherboards:

  1. 1.   ASUS Rog Strix X470-F Gaming
  2. 2.   asRock X470 Taichi
  3. 3.   ASAU Crosshair VI Hero


I’ll purchase new Ram (16g), maybe a new power supply (if needed), a new video card and whatever I need, but there’s no need to get more then I’ll use. I prefer to tinker more than gameplay but I do need it for some light consulting, music and video work.

Any advice is welcome and I’m having a blast with this rebuild.
