I managed to snag a 5800x

This will be replacing my Ryzen 7 2700 which is currently sitting in an Asrock Mitx B450 mobo

Having recently bought an Asus mobo for my game rig, I love the Bios, so want to stick with the brand.

I needs to be either an mItx or mAtx as my case is mAtx

My thoughts are one of these boards -

My basket at Overclockers UK:
Total: £300.40 (includes shipping: £10.50)​

I think the question is do I need a new board and if so what would the benefits be?

TUF is way better overall, also if you do a system upgrade and care about features Nvidia RTX IO and probably the equivalent of AMD won't work with PCIe 3.0 so you must have 4.0 which I think you do not have on 4xx

TUF also won't disable any pci expansion if you use both M2 (unlike the MSI matx for example), I read all reviews on that form factor as I was looking to upgrade and currently Intel does not have anything I want to buy, however coming from Intel the choice of Mobo for AMD is truly horrible and very low quality.

I would go with the TUF honestly, upgrading to get a 450 makes zero sense :)
