Stick to b450/x470, they're sub-$100 often.

The 500 series uses quite a bit more power to run PCIe 4.0 devices, if you have no PCIe 4.0 devices that's wasted energy. If you are running PCIe 4 devices, you're likely exposing your system to more heat which isn't typically a good match for ITX builds. The runs are so short on ITX boards, PCIe 4 can theoretically be enabled without the need of the extra power x570 offers. AMD disabled 4.0 on sub-500 series boards but there's a chance manufacturers can re-enable it if they can figure out the code. I'm guessing most ITX boards are capable due to the short distances, power shouldn't be an issue. Still though, I don't see the need for the slightly faster PCIe speed being justified due to the extra heat. Unless you have one of the ITX cases with good cooling, I wouldn't consider it. Also, if you're going to buy one of those ITX cases with good cooling, you're spending a lot of $ for it. At that point, you may as well go MicroATX, MicroATX has a lot of cases with great cooling at much more reasonable prices.

Im done with PC upgrades and new builds, The MB prices are too high, X570 is a scam and the the first gen Ryzens are good enough.

This MB is a prime example of all that.

There are only two ITX X570 boards available currently - this and the Gigabyte Auros Pro I. From what I can gather, the Gigabyte board is the better option and it's regularly $219.

ITX x470 boards are not sufficiently cheaper to justify purchasing one over the X570, or I would also recommend that route.

Well, the b450 and x470 on this form factor are good enough, problem is... sellers know it and they cost almost the same as x570 ITX boards. I want the B450 Strix or X470 strix

Aorus was 209 at launch on newegg. The AsRock has optical out while the Gigabyte does not. But the gigabyte has 2 slots for m.2 while ASRock only 1. Everywhere you look, there is a compromise. I, for one, rather get B450 because I don't want a fan that will fail in a few years time.

They're cheaper all the time, and a b450 even cheaper, sub $100
